The Liberals are employing the strategy Catherine McKenna proclaimed: “But you know, I actually gave them some real advice. I said that if you actually say it louder, we’ve learned in the House of Commons, if you repeat it, if you say it louder, if that is your talking point, people will totally believe it.” Indeed. And that is the strategy the Liberals have been using — with considerable success — to attempt to rewrite history when it comes to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic fallout that resulted. When initial lockdowns and a rapid economic collapse began, many people pointed out that if the government was telling people to stay home and thus lose their incomes, the government also had to ensure that people had a means of supporting themselves. Before the Liberals even introduced any such program, people like myself were calling for $2000 payments to be sent out to Canadians, which is what the government ended up doing. They did so with the support of all parties in the House of Commons, including the Conservatives, who repeatedly expressed support for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit program, and voted in favour of it.
