    You lot have your own issues with clear lines of communication and no $1200 cheque will remedy that.

    Most of the problem stems from your media sources.

    That's what you get when you let politics and media jump into bed with each other.

    We've closed our borders, probably a little too late, but at least we've isolated our citizens from further external sources.

    The other saving grace is we have clear communication from the chief health officer and the Prime Mincer every day.

    We'd all like $1200 cheques, but in reality it's not going to do anything other than create more inflation and debt.

    Distasteful for what reason?

    Consider our fellow musicians who do it for a living. The drummer in my band makes 100% of his money playing and teaching, and the summer gigging season this year is going to be terrible.

    I figure any money is intended to help those people that live paycheck to paycheck. Primarily hourly wage folks.
    I don’t anticipate receiving anything and I would refuse to accept anything that I didn’t earn. There are plenty of people in real need out there and I hope they get help sooner rather than later.

    my understanding is there are some people on this forum who may be sick, there are some who have lost friends etc. to me this is not a frivolous subject
    I apologized once for my political comment. don't think I need to again. hope you stay safe and well!

    Tell that to someone who can’t pay for groceries because they can’t work anymore.

    I'm sure that's exactly what it's intended for, and if only those people got it and I got nothing I would be the first to applaud. I don't need the money. That said, Rachael doesn't send checks back uncashed...

    How is that relevant to my post?

    inflation and debt are the consequences of this federal injection of cash... Your government, like many others around the globe are trying to stimulate their economy and keep people who live paycheque to paycheque able to finance their expenses, before it becomes a far more dire situation.

    So what makes you think that people who can't work anymore are not able to understand the fact that these government actions do not also create inflation and debt?.

    you said this- “We'd all like $1200 cheques, but in reality it's not going to do anything other than create more inflation and debt.“

    I take issue with the “it’s not going to do anything...”. No, for some people it will pay for groceries, medicine, rent, etc.

    Why is this so hard?

    I don't believe that the OP's intent was to stir up controversy, but not well thought through. This was bound to go south from the start.

    I'm surprised what a sensitive subject this is. Maybe it's because I'm in healthcare, and we have different conditioned responses to this sort of thing. Pandemic? Sure, it sucks, and it sucks for some people worse than others. But it's still ok to laugh, make love, and buy yourself and those you care about nice things if you can afford it. If you don't take joy in life where you can, you're going to end up eating your fingernails down to your elbows, and I might just need my elbows for something later. Honestly, in my line of work, people who don't do that end up blowing their brains out.
