Covid-19 Update – May 21, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“While we are grateful that the government has listened to Conservatives by expanding CEBA eligibility for small businesses and investing further in urban indigenous organizations, we strongly believe a democratic country like Canada must have a functional Parliament, said MP Arnold Viersen.

 “The Liberals are spending hundreds of billions of dollars – but they are refusing to provide an economic update.  With the possibility of the debt reaching a trillion dollars this year, taxpayers deserve to know how the government is spending their money.”
