Parliament Video: Jenny in Question Period: COVID-19 response & supports for workers

On March 10, 2020, I asked of Prime Minister Trudeau:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, the Minister of Labour said the government is not hearing from workers who cannot afford to stay home. I say to get out of the boardrooms and talk to the workers on the streets in our communities.

B.C. has its first case of community transmission, and yesterday we had our first death due to COVID-19. To protect the health and safety of Canadians, B.C.'s medical health officer has asked Canada to delay our cruise season.

Can the Prime Minister confirm that that he will accept this advice? Exactly what support will he be providing for the workers and businesses?"
