Bloc Québécois Leader Discusses Economic Recovery Plan

In a press conference in Gatineau, Bloc Québécois’ leader Yves-François Blanchet details his party’s plan for COVID-19 economic recovery. This plan emphasizes health transfers to provinces in fighting COVID-19, as well as the importance of investing in Quebec’s regional natural resources transformation sector. It also contains propositions such as an 8-month amnesty to counter the effect of a fiscal rebound that many of the 8.7 million users of the phased-out Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) will face when they file their return for the next tax year.
