Q19. How much control should the federal government have over what Canadians say online?

I don’t know what the laws for online speech and related protections are now, but my gut feeling is they’re OK.

Q20. How much money should the federal government give to Canadians whose employment was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic?

At this point, it feels like pandemic cash if you can’t work because your business was closed is done, but I do still feel like Canadians should get employment insurance if they’re working but can’t work for an isolation period because they test positive for COVID (although maybe not if you’re not vaccinated?).

Q21. People should be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to attend public events.

Vaccine passports make sense. Not all services will be able to offer this requirement, but I think as many as possible should.

Q22. How much should the federal government make individual Canadians pay for every tonne of greenhouse gas they emit through fossil fuel consumption?

Whether a carbon tax is levied on the individual or at the corporate level, cost increases will be passed on to the consumer. This is a good thing.

Q23. The federal government should guarantee a minimum income for all Canadian adults regardless of whether or not they have a job.

Yes. I love the idea of basic income. I am sharing a version of my idea for basic income here, with a 36% basic income tax and a basic income of $19,789. It’s radical but it does work to accomplish what it sets out to (lift every single Canadian out of poverty).

Q24. Quebec should be formally recognized as a nation in the Constitution.

Quebec needs to make up its mind and decide whether it wants to be part of Canada or not. If you want to be ‘a nation’, doesn’t that mean you want to be your own country? I don’t know how these things work…
