On behalf of the PMO, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, this is now the (in my personal opinion) improved ‘for publication’ version of the Safe Restart Agreement
Hear yee, hear yee ... the following is an announcement from the Prime Ministers Office
Yesterday, the Prime Ministers propaganda department (AKA the Prime Ministers Office) sent out a media release on next steps for the Safe Restart program.
Having worked for many years in the media, I realized right away that someone had missed running this past the editor(s) to check for any things which needed to be fined tuned.
On behalf of the PMO, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, this is the new, and in my personal opinion, improved ‘for publication’ version ..........
As we move
into the fall and the world continues to deal with the impacts of COVID-19, the
Government of Canada remains focused on keeping Canadians safe and healthy,
while continuing to ensure they have the supports needed during this global
health and economic crisis.
Or as some might say ... to continue shoveling out money, with little to no checks and balances ... and whether needed or not.
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today shared the details of the investment (vote buying frenzy) that will be made through the Safe Restart Agreement. This will provide continued support to Canadians, as we safely restart our economy and build a more resilient Canada.
Through the Agreement, reached earlier this summer, the Government of Canada announced over $19 billion in federal funding (future taxes to be paid by you, your children, and their children) to help provinces and territories safely restart the economy.
Provinces and territories were asked to outline in a letter how these funds would best be allocated within their jurisdictions, based on their priorities. The premiers have now submitted the letters and the federal funding (again read that to be monies to be paid for through future taxes imposed on all Canadians) will be transferred to the provinces and territories.
The Safe Restart Agreement supports measures to increase testing and contact tracing to protect Canadians from future waves of the virus. It will help support the capacity of our health care systems, including through services for people facing mental health challenges.
It will also provide municipalities with funding so they can quickly deliver essential services, like public transit, that Canadians rely on every day, and secure a reliable source of personal protective equipment (PPE) for essential workers.
The Agreement will also provide direct support to Canadian workers, including safe child care to help parents returning to work.
It will also provide income support for people without paid sick leave, and takes steps to protect the most vulnerable, like Canada’s seniors – and this along with the likely soon to be announced Universal Basic Income program where monies for working class people will be transferred to those who don’t, or won’t.
As we continue to deal with the health and economic challenges of the pandemic, the government will continue to invest in Canadians – by bribing you and others foolish enough to believe there is a free lunch, and that money does indeed grow on trees.
Together, working with the provinces and territories, we will build a more resilient Canada – one that is healthier and safer, cleaner and more competitive, and fairer and more inclusive for everyone ...
... based on Justin Trudeau’s ethically and morally challenged, and ever changing beliefs, which are dependent upon checking to see which way the wind is blowing.
