"We're Pulling Out All The Stops": Trudeau Promises To Help Canadians With Their Bills As He Leads Nation From Home

After his wife, Sophie Gregoire, revealed last night that she had been diagnosed with Covid-19 following a trip to London, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - who apparently hasn't been infected - said during a noon press conference on Friday that he is feeling fine, and will continue running the country from the comfort of his home office until he's officially cleared to return to the office.

 

During a news conference held outside his home

 

n the mean time, Canada will be "pulling out all the stops"

 

Trudeau ticked off a litany of daily stressors that are affecting Canadians, from school cancellations creating urgent child-care needs, to workers who might need to forgo paychecks.

 

"We will help Canadians financially," Trudeau said, promising to help out with child care, as well as a "fiscal stimulus package" that will be delivered "in the coming days.

 

Trudeau also said he's spoken with world leaders including Trump, UK PM Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron, and assured Canadians that the G7 would deliver a "coordinated response" to the crisis. The leaders of the organization's nation-state members will join a conference call on Monday to decide (or not) exactly what the nature of that response will be.

 

Big question is how will they help with bills?  One article I read from News1130 said he will help people will rent, make sure they can pay it, how do you determine who can and can't afford it, what about mortgages? No one should worry about childcare or groceries? How are they going to determine all of that, who needs the financial help and who doesn't?  Theres a lot of questions about this whole situation right now that are going unanswered that I hope we get clarity to soon enough.

I would guess if you have kids U18 you'll be seeing some sort of cheque soon. Not sure on the rest of it, or how much he can really promise tbh. Can't pay everyone's rent.

Does that mean Turdeau will support me here in Maui as I self quarantine? Might take another month.

We laugh now, but the government bureaucracy created to dole out all this free money will cost more than the actual dollars aimed to help people.  I’d say .70 cents on the dollar goes to the bureaucracy.  Socialism at its finest.
