Conservatives will hopefully put an end to CERB so Canadians go back to work and small businesses stop being forced to close due to shortages of workers. Way too many lazy people taking advantage of CERB. It was a VERY necessary program during the *********, but not now... and it has created a crazy situation where people would rather sit on their butts and collect a welfare cheque than to get to work like the rest of us.
CERB - now The Canada Recovery Benefit - ends this month SFAIK.
And a lot of people who have collected the benefit have needed it right up until now. Myself included - my business won't return to usual until this fall, after a long dry spell.
And, SFAIK a lot of effort is being put into finding people who have collected the benefit without qualifying for it.
Plus the CERB money, $450. a week, isn't much for a lot of folks compared to their usual earnings.
