We almost had some clarity, but one swallow does not make a summer.
Yes, there is a need for discussions on the Canada emergency response benefit. The government says that it wants to transform the program into something very coercive, without admitting that the lack of an employment incentive has essentially sabotaged another program, the wage subsidy.
That deserves some thought. That is what we are elected to do. We do not need to spend eight months on this, we can fix it in a few hours. When the government says that we are going to have to vote on this, it means rubber stamping its bill. We have the right to debate it, to have discussions and to improve it.
I watched the election on the night of October 21. It was a beautiful night. It was more fun than a hockey game. People elected a minority government.
Can the government admit that?
