Another day, another Erin O’Toole announcement that tries to shed his record:
- He teamed up with Justin Trudeau to vote against prescription drug and dental coverage that would have directly helped gig workers;
- He helped slash EI benefits and made it harder for gig and seasonal workers to access the program;
- He stood by while Justin Trudeau tried to deny gig workers financial supports during the pandemic;
- He said people out of work from the pandemic “do not want the CERB” and suggested CERB reduced the work ethic of Canadians.
“If Erin O’Toole actually wanted to help people working in the gig economy, he wouldn’t have teamed up with Justin Trudeau to vote against prescription drug and dental coverage for these workers. His record shows that he would make life harder for people. Just like Justin Trudeau, Erin O’Toole’s plan gives the biggest corporations a free ride and hurts everyone else.”
