This is a thread topic of its own to try to draw attention to the situation and to highlight the magnitude of this crisis. Roughly 1,000,000 Canadians desperately need income assistance from the federal government CERB program but do not qualify. People who have been unemployed at the start of the Covid crisis and Employment Insurance has already run out , people who are currently on employment insurance but their fourteen weeks will expire before this crisis is over are just two categories of many who need help but are not receiving it.
This is unacceptable in a country like Canada. This thread is to identify the people in need and then look for solutions to force the government to take immediate action to remedy this problem.
