Parliament Video: Jenny asks if people followed MP Vaughan's advice will be penalized by Bill C17 for collecting CERB

On June 18, 2020 in the Parliament, NDP MP Jenny Kwan asked whether people who followed the advice of Parliamentary Secretary Adam Vaughan to collect CERB would be penalized by Bill C-17:

"I'll be sharing time with MP MacGregor.

There is massive confusion in the public about the eligibility rules for CERB. In the rules on the government's website, it says “are or expect to be without employment income or self-employment income for at least 14 consecutive days in the initial four-week period”, yet Parliamentary Secretary Adam Vaughan tweeted “apply.... you don't need to prove 14 days without any income.”

For those who followed Adam Vaughan's advice, can the Prime Minister confirm that they will not be penalized and criminalized under Bill C-17?"
