Spending Taxpayers Money

They are telling us that we here in Canadians have made more than 830,000 repayments of COVID-19 emergency aid benefits because they were not entitled. Which is a good thing, as if they took the money without checking things out and don’t need it, they should pay it back. But here again in the next breath our Powers That Be says. In June, the government proposed legislation that would have imposed fines or even jail time on people who deliberately lied on CERB applications. It backtracked after a public and political outcry. Again, here is what I think. If there is money available and you are in need, and I say in need, and you qualify for it, then by all means apply for it. But if you don’t need it, and are just taking it so you don’t have to work or using the money for things unnecessary, well then … I say the Powers that be, should go after those that did wrong. Just because we are in the midst of things that aren’t all that nice right now, there is still no reason for cheats to get away with it. The thing is, what a lot don’t understand is, that handing out all this money can’t be kept up. I wouldn’t hesitate to say that our country today, is so far in debt we might never get out of it. And the next thing is … it isn’t the Powers That Be’s money. It’s ours, the working people. But giving them the benefit of the doubt, I would hope that they are taking these things serious. But then again!! My Opinion Only.
