Why would you give it to people who don't deserve it? 

Itís taxed back.  Itís universal so there doesnít need to be a bureaucracy to determine when people need it...  are they qualified?  How long have they been on it?  The bureaucratic mess goes on.  With UBI, itís all handled at tax time.

There has to be some kind of eligibility requirements.

Yes, there would be.  Resident and citizen of Canada.

It's not like you're going to give it to people visiting Canada on vacation.

No one has EVER said it would or should.   You clearly have never read a single thing about it. 

We shouldn't provide income for healthy people who willfully choose not to contribute to society.  And we certainly shouldn't give them the same income as someone who is disabled or elderly.

We already do...   and then we create an entire bureaucracy to manage it.  Thereís no reason it couldnít be scaled, say if you have dependents. 

Imagine how many lazy people would stay on CERB if it was indefinite and had no requirements.  Imagine how many college students would take a year off and just party or travel on the government dime, many even staying with their folks for free.  Great way to save money!  This isn't humanitarian at all, you'd be eroding these people psychologically by turning them into government dependents akin to children.  We need to treat people like responsible adults.

Imagine all the terrible things....     ::) ::)
