@Wipqozn Dammit Fisman, go big or go home: Require all employers to provide at least a week of paid sick leave to all part-time employees, and more for full-time employees.
Lockdowns work, people.

@MBraedley Yuuuuuup
But Ford wasn't elected to represent the people. He was elected to represent the corps. His entire platform was just "buck a beer!"

Lol fuck Erin o Toole. He was asked if there's anything he liked about the recently released budget, and he says no.
Bill includes funding for senior care, increased minimum wage...
But PC party likes nothing about it
Not saying this is good or bad. I haven't looked into it enough yet. But to say you like nothing about increases minimum wage? Fuck off
Money for child-care too
But again, cons say there's nothing good
 
9:13 PM
Lol apparently o Toole was already slamming the budget before it was even released
How the heck does a party whose platform is literally nothing more "JUSTIN BAD", with literally no platform at all, get so many votes
> Ottawa is proposing up to $30 billion in fresh spending over the next five years to create a nationwide childcare system that it promises will bring childcare fees down to an average of $10 per day in regulated childcare centres by fiscal 2025-26.
> Homeowners who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents would have to pay an annual tax of one per cent of the value of residential real estate that is considered to be vacant or underused. The measure includes a requirement for foreign owners to file a declaration on the current use of their property with “significant penalties for failure to file,” the budget reads.
> But in a housing market beset by crippling supply shortages, the budget announced funding for a mere 35,000 affordable units, with some of that money allocated to repairs of existing units rather than new construction.
> Around $17 billion is promised in the years ahead to promote a “green” recovery out of the COVID-19 pandemic and create jobs.
> Another measure targeting heavy emitters is a new tax incentive to encourage companies to adopt technology that traps carbon dioxide into the ground from fuel combustion instead of seeing it released into the atmosphere.
 
@Wipqozn because with covid guidelines, politics is the only sports people can watch right now
 
> The Trudeau government’s first budget since 2019 runs at whopping 724 pages and contains a number of proposals meant to both support Canadians in the ongoing COVID-19 and set the stage of what will come after.
 
@Wipqozn I think he's just opposing any budget that doesn't do austerity, and that his disciples agree that they want austerity, even though it's already been proven that austerity is not a good idea in a crisis situation
 
@Nzall He's just opposing the liberals. That's literally all the PC party does. They have no actual platform aside from helping big businesses.
> The budget proposes to extend the maximum eligibility period for receiving the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) by 12 weeks, for a total of 50 weeks, up from the current cap of 38 weeks.
> The budget also pledges new funds for long-term reforms to the EI system, including establishing a 420-hour qualifying threshold for regular and special benefits and establishing a 14-week minimum entitlement for regular benefits.
> As anticipated, the budget includes a luxury tax on new cars and private aircraft valued at more than $100,000 and boats worth over $250,000.
> Ottawa is also ready to increase the minimum wage for workers in federally-regulated industries to $15 per hour. The measure will affect around 26,000 Canadians who currently make less than that in those sectors.
 
9:55 PM
Go Steve. Calling out Toole on his bullshit m
He keeps trying to say his carbon tax isn't a tax, and Steve Murphy is calling him right out
But of course Toole can't call it a tax because they know their base freaks out about the word tax
 
10:12 PM
> The medical examiner, Francisco Diaz, didn't note any evidence that Sicknick had an allergic reaction to chemical spray or list any internal or external injuries, according to The Washington Post, which first reported the ruling. Still, Diaz told the newspaper that "all that transpired" on January 6 "played a role in his condition."
