Context : Question
M. Peter Julian (New Westminsterâ€”Burnaby, NPD): Des experts en matiÃ¨re de santÃ© disent aux gens de rester chez eux s'ils sont malades. Or, pour ceux et celles sans congÃ©s de maladie, cela pourrait entraÃ®ner la perte de leur paie ou mÃªme leur travail. Nous entendons parler de cette crise Coved19 depuis des semaines.
Last week all that the finance minister announced was that he would be making an announcement. Empty words from the Liberals donâ€™t help these workers pay their bills. No firepower there.
These workers are trying to make the right choices for public health. When will the Prime Minister actually deliver?
Right Hon. Justin Trudeau (Prime Minister, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, we are very aware that many workers and families across the country are worried about the impacts of Coronavirus as it impacts the global economy and, indeed, the Canadian economy. That is why we will be announcing measures to help our workers, to help Canadians right across the country as things evolve with the Coronavirus.
We are following the best recommendations of experts, both in the health and medical sector but also in the financial sector, to ensure that Canadians have the capacity to get through this with confidence.
