Getting Political Parties off the Emergency Wage Subsidy .

September 03, 2020

As Erin O’Toole promised during the CPC leadership race, the party has stopped accepting CEWS emergency funding and, the party is repaying funds received to date.

O’Toole believes the wage subsidy was designed to help businesses survive the economic side-effects of the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, not to subsidize political parties.   Mr. O’Toole believes that all parties should return funds received and warns that the Trudeau Liberals must not use taxpayer dollars to unfair advantage as they attempt to orchestrate and early election.

Mr. O’Toole has challenged Liberal leader Trudeau and NDP leader Singh to follow his lead.
