This is a serious public health crisis and every person has an important role to play in Canada’s pandemic response. We must ensure that every Canadian has the support they need to do their part.
Jagmeet Singh and the NDP have presented a plan to get Canadians through these difficult times and we will continue to push the government to enact these measures. Already we have seen the government partially adopt our positions on $2,000 per month in support for individuals and on increasing the wage subsidy to 75%. No one should be left to fall through the cracks.
My office remains open to support constituents via phone and email. We are here to help you navigate these uncertain times. Please contact us if you have any questions or need support. We are now responding to constituents 7 days a week and have brought in extra staff to help with constituent questions.
Whether you’re staying at home and doing your part with physical distancing, working on the front lines in healthcare or social services, or working to make sure the rest of us can stay safe, fed, and in touch with the outside word, thank you.
We’re in this together and we will get through this together.
