Canadian Stimulus

What Canada seems to be offering right now is a tiny bump for the unemployment benefit to those who lost their jobs because of the pandemic. Nothing like “$2,000 to everybody,” like some Twittertwats seem to think.

Although Canada could absolutely afford to send $2K to everybody with its tiny population and sky-high taxes. And I hope it does, at least to the lower income brackets. Just send money, Canada!

I’m wasting my time, of course, because a Canadian relative has been waiting for three weeks to get his regular unemployment benefit. (Got fired right before the pandemic, such bad luck). Imagine how long it will take to get the stimulus money.
