Coronavirus: Canadian ministers, health officials on Canada's current COVID-19 situation | LIVE

by News Update

Canadian ministers and public health officials are expected to provide an update on the government’s ongoing response to COVID-19 on Tuesday.

The Canadian government is extending many of its emergency COVID-19 benefits as the pandemic rages on, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced last Friday.

The Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) and the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit will be extended by 12 weeks. Meanwhile, another two weeks will be added to the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit.

The government is also increasing Employment Insurance (EI) availability to 50 weeks in total, meaning an additional 24 weeks can be claimed.

The prime minister’s warning comes on the heels of grim warnings from federal public health officials that Canada’s recent decline in COVID-19 cases is under threat from new variants.

Imagine getting paid 6 figures to be a broken record for a year straight?

You all belong in jail.

There was no excess death in 2020.
Prove me wrong.

Doctor Tam – when are you going to release your models and projections for mental health outcomes and suicides, so we can see which crisis is larger?

Nautical Disaster February 24, 2021 - 12:16 AM

Doctor Tam – are you able to provide Canadians with the set of research data that your most recent Covid case projections are based on (the one that has the orange & grey lines going straight up to the moon)? Canadians deserve to see the data underlying all forecasts and decisions, wouldn't you agree?

Public officials and enablers need to be held personally responsible for decisions made…

Minister Leblanc is very patriotic with all those Decorative flags behind them While he sells Canada future away

Calling our liberal government China's lap dog would be an insult to my cute little lap 🐕's!
They literally stood down and would Not partake in yesterday's vote of whether or not to call what the CCP are doing to the Uyghurs,
Genocide or not😔
All three Opposing parties "For Once" put aside political differences and
Voted Yes!!!
Except for trudeaus cabinet.
They didn't even bother to show up.

You are all an embarrassment to Canada

what a scam?

Emergency Covid 19 Benefits are extended but the Hydro is going back to the tiered pricing. 🤦‍♀️

Lies all lies no one believes you.

Make no mistake. ….. The media carrying water for this so called "pandemic" is absurd. The reality is we could easily open everything back up and go back to business as usual, and nothing out of the ordinary, in terms of sickness and death, would occur.

No taxpayer dollars to News Media.

I believe now is the time to change our Canadian flag from a maple leaf to a giant sheep. We have our rights and our fundamental freedoms taken away from us with no real facts or data. It's time to take action!

Questions for the covidian doomer cult:

How many millions of people must lose their jobs in order to make YOU feel safe from a flu virus?

How many tens of thousands of businesses must go bankrupt in order to make YOU feel safe from a flu virus?

How many people being put on hold for life-saving medical treatments have to DIE in order to make YOU feel safe from a flu virus?

How many tens of thousands of depressed and lonely people must DIE due to suicide/ODs in order to make YOU feel safe from a flu virus?

How many school kids psychologically traumatized beyond repair will it take in order to make YOU feel safe from a flu virus?

Your immune system is getting weaker every day that you continue to wear a mask, isolate, and over-sanitize yourself.

Take your mask off. Hug your family and friends. Shake hands. Gather in groups. 
Boost immunity & stay heathy.
