Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer is calling for a reduction in the Canada Emergency Response Benefit. He believes such a move would "encourage and incentivize people to re-enter the workforce."

The emergency benefit was put in place to aid laid-off workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As it stands, the benefit provides $2,000 a month to out-of-work Canadians.

Scheer's statement, while not as vocal, mirrors other right-wing politicians' demands to 're-open the economy.' Conservative MP Marilyn Gladu has called for an end to social distancing and preventative measures, saying it is time for the public to "get back to work."
