Canadians also need to know that the government is taking steps based on evidence. The Liberal governmentâ€™s decision to exclude American tourists from the travel ban doesnâ€™t make any scientific sense. The U.S. shares our only land border, 70% of tourists coming to Canada are American and the public health situation in the U.S. is worse than at home.
Given the worsening public health situation in the U.S., the Liberal government needs to present solid public health evidence for leaving the U.S. out of the border closure.
The Prime Ministerâ€™s repeated promises that help is coming some day is not helping families, workers and small business owners pay their bills. The Liberal government must provide direct assistance to families and to workers.
People staying home from work today needed to hear that their Prime Minister has their back. They canâ€™t afford to wait."
