Trudeau Just Promised Paid Sick Days For Federal Workers But Singh Isn't Buying It

"He wants us to believe he'll do this after an elxn?" Jagmeet Singh tweeted.

Paid Sick Days In Canada Promised By Trudeau But Singh Isn't Convinced

Justin Trudeau revealed his newest campaign promise of paid sick days in Canada for federal workers, but Jagmeet Singh is questioning whether or not it will actually happen.

"Within the first 100 days of a new mandate, a re-elected Liberal government will introduce 10-day paid sick leave for all federally regulated workers," the prime minister announced on August 20 during a campaign stop in Winnipeg.

Trudeau also noted that his government will talk to the provinces about how to have paid sick days for provincially regulated sectors. "As the government and as the country's largest employer, it's up to us to set the example," he said.

Singh tweeted about this after the announcement was made, saying that Trudeau has gone through four waves of the COVID-19 pandemic without making paid sick leave available to workers.

"After 18 months of refusing to do this, while workers got sick or worse, he wants us to believe he'll do this after an elxn?" Singh said.
