    Debacle: Federal Wage Subsidy Plan Descends Into Confusion & Chaos

    Debacle: Federal Wage Subsidy Plan Descends Into Confusion & Chaos

    SpencerFernandoMarch 31, 2020

    Finance Minister Bill Morneau had planned a press conference to announce the measures. It was postponed, with serious doubts emerging over how it will actually work.

    Many business across Canada felt very hopeful when the government announced an upcoming wage subsidy program, to help offset some of the economic destruction being caused by the CCP Coronavirus.

    Yet, the program has descended into confusion and chaos.

    As noted by Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre, the plan appears to not be legal, and will require substantial changes to address the confusion:

    “1/3 Parliament will need to be recalled to salvage the government’s wage subsidy promise. Trudeau’s announcement is not legal under the law his government wrote last week. Morneau probably just realized that and that’s why he suddenly cancelled his press conference.”

    “2/3 Trudeau said a company must have lost 30% of revenue to qualify for the wage subsidy. That is not in the law his government wrote. Trudeau said “all employers” will get help.”

    “3/3 But public companies–which are among the largest employers in Canada–are not eligible under the law his government wrote. Trudeau also said employers that cannot afford to pay 25% of the wage will still get the 75% subsidy. That is not in the law his government wrote.”

    So, the Liberal government yet again seems to be slow to act, and even good things they’ve announced are being botched.

    Amid such a large crisis, Canada can not afford incompetence and delays.

    This would be funny if it wasn’t going to cost more money and negatively affect those that really need it. Such as single moms of small children who are struggling already, without throwing in the stress of a virus afflicting their kids.

    Communication. They should try it amongst themselves sometime. I wasnt hopeful about this and Im still not. Christ, they havent been able to pay THEIR OWN employees properly for years now because of that f-ed up phoenix pay system of theirs. How does anybody expect them to roll out a program thats 1000x more complex in almost zero time. I'll be surprised if employers who arent liberal-connected see a dime in under 6 months, and even then, Juan's Convience Store will probably get 10 million and Suncor will get 50 bucks.

    I gotta agree with billy, if you're operating and not able to pay employees... why are you operating?
    I know, the employees will likely be paid more from employees then from EI, but I wonder if SNL or whoever those guys are will be the first in line for some discount labourers.

    This is the government that botched selling dope! Why would "giving" away our money be any different?
    Remember May 1, 2020 when they say: "we don't want your guns."

    I'm going to look into this some more, but don't the OIC spending measures let them do something else as long as it's on top of/ separate from any other measures already passed?

    Pierre Polivierre is having a grand old time skewering the government over this announcement.
    "It is an absolute truism that law-abiding, armed citizens pose no threat to other law-abiding citizens."

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".
