Government launches benefit-finder tool for emergency aid as parties spar over return of Parliament


The government launched an online tool today to help Canadians navigate the various financial benefits available during the pandemic, as the political parties continue to spar over the resumption of Parliament. "Virtual committee meetings are not a replacement for Parliament, nor are the prime minister's daily press conferences in front of Rideau cottage," he said. It is scheduled to return Monday, and an agreement must be reached between the parties on how the proceedings will unfold. According to the House Speaker's office, there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 linked to in-person House sittings or committee meetings to date. Bradley said normal service levels are not required for recent sittings of the House or committee meetings.
