COVID 19 - Are you being socially responsible?           

COVID 19 - Are you being socially responsible?            heart 

Our key term these days is ‘social responsibility’. We have a responsibility to ourselves, our families and our community at large to exercise the many precautions as outlined by our governments. This is not only regarding social distancing, but it is also fiscal responsibility. Needless to say, I have been very disappointed in some of the things my colleagues and I have heard from some of my fellow Canadians.

Our Federal and Provincial Governments are doing a remarkable job under the current circumstances by providing support for the people who need it most. People with young families; seniors; students; the vulnerable, but when I hear of various professionals including owners of successful businesses wanting to access support from the initiatives announced by both governments it makes me shudder.

There are many individuals who can’t make their rent and groceries that really need financial help. They have lost their only source of income. Despite what you may think, the Governments do not have an excess of funds to use, the United States is already having a difficult time funding EI claims. The support they are giving comes from the taxes we pay. It is time to look beyond our own circumstances and see this as a time to help those around us.

As Canadians, we need to be socially responsible by being good neighbors. Only claim the support if you really need it, not to beat the system!

Think about it, let us build a country that will make us all proud. Let us help those who need it the most.

Proud Canadian
