Why would you give it to people who don't deserve it?  There has to be some kind of eligibility requirements.  It's not like you're going to give it to people visiting Canada on vacation.

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.

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.

Due to automation it's probably inevitable Gorgeous, but we still have a few years to consider it. Then it will all be in 'who' or what politicans make the decisions who is lazy, etc.

There are a lot more questions involved than what is indicated by the squad's callous spamming.
