Program Title: In brief: Aid package expanded, do you qualify?
Description: The government and opposition parties in Parliament have passed an $107 billion aid package bill to help Canadians struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Prime Minister says “help is on the way” and has assured those struggling that they will be able to access benefits within 10 days of applying. But, who qualifies? How long will this aid last? Meanwhile, the Health Minister is bringing in stricter measures for those returning to the country - but, how will the government enforce that? Parliamentary reporter J.P. Tasker joins Jayme Poisson for answers to those questions, on this episode of Front Burner.
