Singh said the agreement includes an amendment to the wording of Bill C-2 – the bill that would lead emergency assistance people in Canada (CERB) to an employment insurance program with an expanded access right or one of three new recoveries – to significantly increase the number of Canadians who have used paid sick leave. The agreement applies to the legislation known as Bill C-2 and scheduled for two days of debate early next week, but it probably also means that the NDP will eventually vote with the Liberals on the Speech from the Throne. “So, yes, part of the agreement is to make it happen very quickly, so that aid can get to Canadians right away.” OTTAWA — The federal government has reached an agreement with the NDP to soon implement the Liberals` bill that has just been introduced to implement a trio of new covid-19 benefits to fill the gaps left by Canada`s upcoming emergency program. The agreement paved the way for the NDP, which confirmed that it will support the Liberal minority to avoid a fall election. N-D-P leader Jagmeet Singh says the deal includes a paid sickness benefits program — which offers a sick period paid to millions of people. NDP leader Jagmeet Singh confirmed that his party would vote for it as long as the Liberals respected the agreement reached to ensure their support. “Yes, we can support the Speech from the Throne,” Singh said. “I continue to express my concern that the Liberal government likes to say a lot of words in the air and does not support them with action, but if this agreement is reflected in the proposed bill, if the same language exists, we will support the bill and we will also support the Speech from the Throne.” The NDP and the Liberals have agreed on sick leave. “We are entering the second wave, and millions of Canadians are still struggling to make ends meet. We now have an agreement with the NDP on a bill that will provide the assistance Canadians need. Cooperation will enable us to overcome this pandemic,” he said. . On Thursday, the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, Carla Qualtrough, introduced Bill C-2 to implement the trio of promised new covid-19 aid.
In addition to sickness and collection benefits, the government also creates a care benefit. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh will meet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday, November 14, 2019 on Ottawa`s Parliament Hill.
