The Prime Minister started his daily address Thursday (June 11) blaming the Conservatives for standing against the bill for the one-time $600 support for Canadians living with Disabilities.

Justin Trudeau said all parties agreed on the legislation, except for the Conservative party, who he says, “didn’t even allow the house to debate it.”

Trudeau then revealed another $133 million to support Indigenous businesses in protecting jobs and helping communities weather COVID-19.

He says $11 -million will help small and community-owned Indigenous businesses and $16 million is for the tourism industry.
