Oh yes, apply from Dec. 18 for the B.C. Recovery Benefit.
Wait a minute, just a thought here, if you lived financially OK in 2019, but got financially hammered during the COVID-19 pandemic, don’t bother applying. It was announced by the finance minister that they don’t care about what financial situations we might be in now because of the pandemic - only that during 2019 we had problems.
They want us to use our 2019 tax returns to justify the benefits. So much for considering the real-time concerns and financial stresses of the pandemic here in 2020. So much for NDP promises.
I’m thinking in their business of politics it’s referred to as a “falsehood.” Some of us might call it simply a “lie” or, at a minimum, a “limited and convenient construction of truth.”
Just when I started believing that the BC NDP government was here for the people of B.C., it’s once again become clear their truths remain a construction of convenience.
