O’Toole’s Message to Trudeau | Oct 25, 2021

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole has written a letter to Justin Trudeau urging the Prime Minister to reconsider his timeline for parliamentary sittings in order to deal with pressing economic concerns.

The letter was sent a day after Mr. Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland unveiled a $7.4-billion plan to continue providing COVID-19 supports for the hardest-hit businesses through to May 7, 2022. The announcement also included a decision not to extend the Canada Recovery Benefit, which is the main financial pandemic income support program that goes directly to individuals who cannot work for reasons related to COVID-19.
