VANCOUVER — If any group is faring well in the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s Canada’s billionaires whose wealth has increased by $78 billion since March 2020 while the lives of millions of Canadians have been upended, new CCPA research shows.
Donald Trump makes people sick, himself and his entourage included. Given the U.S. president's shameful, almost criminally negligent record on COVID-19, it will be surprising if he is re-elected on November 3.

Il est maintenant temps de penser au-delà des correctifs fiscaux standard et des plans de sauvetage des banques.
