Is it about 3 steps left of most of the god and gun nuts here but FMD this government is terrible.
@Alfisti $2k per month, correct? Is there more, or is that the total of all direct cash assistance from the national government to consumers?

$24k/yr x 16 million workers (approx) is approx CAD $384b. Is that about right?

Alfisti Ok. Do you know the main elements of direct cash assistance, or is there a website that summarizes all of them?

Iím not seeing squillions yet, in direct cash assistance to individuals.

Government direct cash assistance to individuals has been assigned as the reason for many aspects of economic improvement, for example used car price increases, during 2020. Doing the math, one finds this is not the case. At least in the US and Canada.

If that's the case and you're worried then I would wait, let things stabilize, and feel confident in pulling the trigger on the car you truly want without major concern looming over you.
