$1000 government aid money for travellers might change due to backlash

$1000 government aid money for travellers

Canadians who decided to go on vacation and return to Canada might not receive $1000 government aid money for travellers, (the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit), hinted the Federal government due to the uproar of many Canadians doing their part in self quarantining.

The Liberal government went under public fire as they released a statement this past week stating Canadians returning from a vacation abroad could qualify for $500 per week, it they quarantined for 14 days and their salary was effected.

A Bloc Quebecois MP said, “Change the rules of the program so that if you go on a trip for your own pleasure you won’t be eligible to receive the $1,000. I think it’s as simple as that! The Liberal Federal government must clarify its message and the criteria for that program must change.”

The Conservative Party and Members of the Bloc Quebecois believe that if Canadians choose to travel and defy public health recommendations and go away on vacation, they should not be subsidized for their quarantine as they return home.
