Coronavirus relief package likely not enough to stop widespread layoffs, some observers warn

Quote:

The $82 billion assistance package that Ottawa unveiled Wednesday to combat the economic fallout from the global coronavirus pandemic is a good start, but doesn’t go far enough, according to some business groups and economists.
A key criticism is that the plan doesn’t do enough to prevent businesses from laying off staff, raising the risk of permanent closures and an economy that slides into a deep recession — or worse.
“If this (happens) on a large scale, it’s going to be a disaster,” said Luc Vallée, chief operating officer of the Montreal Economic Institute.
Vallée, an economist who weathered several economic crises over a career that included stints as an executive at the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, Canadian National Railways and Laurentian Bank, says cutting or suspending payroll and municipal property taxes would ease the burden of the pandemic on employers.
Coronavirus calamity is not the time to provide less than solid economic rescue plan
How much damage can the coronavirus do to Canada’s economy — and how we’ll bounce back: BMO chief economist Doug Porter — podcast
Ottawa to buy up to $50-billion in mortgages in move that harkens back to the crisis of 2008
At the same time, he said, suspending the GST and provincial sales tax could stimulate spending in the parts of the economy that are continuing to run, such as online retail.
“You want to minimize those closures that are going to be permanent,” he said. “If you have permanent shutdowns, it’s not going to be a recession, it’s going to be a depression.”
What’s different from the dot-com bust in the late 1990s and early 2000s or the financial crisis of 2008 is that the pandemic and response is hitting every sector of the economy and every nation around the globe, Vallée said, adding that while businesses that were already teetering can be expected to go under now, the objective should be to allow others to take the least drastic action possible so they can reopen once restrictions are lifted.
Ottawa’s plan provides for $27 billion in direct aid to workers, such as those forced into quarantine or isolation and the self-employed and those who work part-time. An additional $55 billion targets businesses in the form of wage subsidies for small businesses, and tax deferrals. The full amount represents about three per cent of Canada’s GDP.
Dan Kelly, president of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, said support measures should focus on avoiding layoffs at companies that are dealing with a deep and immediate drop in sales as a result of the economic effects of self-isolation.
“As of last weekend, 50 per cent of small firms reported they’ve already experienced a drop in sales,” he said Wednesday. “The number is likely to be much higher today (and) one in four businesses report they will not be able to survive a significant drop in income for more than one month.”
He noted that the wage subsidy for small businesses announced by the Canadian government — 10 per cent of wages over the next 90 days, up to $1,375 per employee or $25,000 per employer — is far lower than a similar subsidy made available in other countries.
“Unfortunately, while the measure is a good one, the level of the subsidy needs to be far higher in order to help — closer to the 75 to 90 per cent levels announced in many European countries,” he said.
Still, an executive at the parent company of Canada’s iconic coffee chain Tim Hortons said the wage subsidy is timely assistance as Tim’s adapts to takeout, delivery and drive-through service only.
Duncan Fulton, chief corporate officer of Restaurant Brands International, said 1,500 franchisees across Canada have been “fighting like hell to maintain as many hours as possible” for their employees.
“Honestly, I thought it was really swift leadership from the prime minister and the government,” Fulton said, adding that access to employment insurance will also ease the burden. Restaurant Brands said Tuesday it would commit $40 million to top up EI payments for Tim Hortons employees who lose shifts due to illness or virus-related self-isolation.
Sachin Aggarwal, chief executive of Think Research Corp., a Toronto-based developer of planning software for doctors and other health professionals, said Ottawa’s initial response to the pandemic “allows people to breath a sigh of relief.”
The wage subsidy provides “meaningful support for small business,” Aggarwal said, noting that Business Development Bank and Export Development Canada have been “excellent at picking up the phone.”
That’s important because companies such as Think Research will need access to capital to get through the crisis.
Aggarwal declined to say if he’s seen the cost of credit spike, other than to say that he is “monitoring the situation” and will be looking at whatever programs and backstops the government makes available.
He said BDC and other Crown lenders should lower their rates temporarily and that the government could provide interest-free loans and loan guarantees.
“We need cheap, cheap loans,” he said. “Working capital is going to be really important.”
For makers and exporters of goods, Ottawa’s relief package is viewed “a good start, but … not enough,” particularly as demand from the United States is drying up, said Dennis Darby, president and CEO of the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters.
He, too, suggested that a payroll tax holiday or similar targeted aid would help, and said he is encouraged by the Canadian government’s continuing talks with the U.S. government.
“Large companies across North America, as their production ramps down, it will affect the supply chain,” Darby said. “And Canada is very much an economy that is part of the supply chain.”

Automakers shut North American plants over coronavirus fears

Quote:

DETROIT — Concerns about the spreading coronavirus are forcing most of North America's auto plants to close, at least temporarily.
Ford, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, Honda and Toyota said they would shut down all of their factories in the region, citing concerns for employees who work in close quarters building automobiles. In addition, Hyundai closed its Alabama plant after a worker tested positive for the virus.
Detroit's three automakers said their closures would begin this week, while Honda and Toyota will start next week. Closings will run from a few days to almost two weeks, but most automakers said they'll have to evaluate the spread of the virus before reopening.
“We have been taking extraordinary precautions around the world to keep our plant environments safe, and recent developments in North America make it clear this is the right thing to do now,” GM CEO Mary Barra said in a statement.
Detroit's three automakers alone will idle about 150,000 workers. They likely will receive supplemental pay in addition to state unemployment benefits. The two checks combined will about equal what the workers normally make. GM said pay was still being negotiated with the United Auto Workers union.

Ford makes automobiles in Canada at a plant in Oakville, Ont., and Fiat Chrysler makes vehicles in Canada at Brampton and Windsor, Ont.
GM closed its Canadian vehicle manufacturing plant in Oshawa, Ont., late last year but is still making automobiles at its complex in Ingersoll, Ont. and builds engines and front-wheel drive transmissions in St. Catharines, Ont.
GM Canada spokeswoman Jennifer Wright said the company is evaluating manufacturing operation schedules and that details for each plant were still being determined.
Ford said it will work with union leaders in the coming weeks on plans to restart factories. The union has been pushing for factories to close because workers are fearful of coming into contact with the virus.
At GM’s pickup truck assembly plant in Flint, Mich., workers have been apprehensive ever since the virus surfaced in the U.S., said Tommy Wolikow, a union member who delivers parts to the assembly line...………...More

Air Canada to temporarily lay off 16,500 staff due to COVID-19 fallout

Quote:

MONTREAL — Air Canada will temporarily lay off 16,500 employees starting this week as the airline struggles with fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Effective this Friday, the layoffs of 15,200 unionized workers and 1,300 managers will last through April and May amid drastically reduced flight capacity from the Montreal-based airline.
"To furlough such a large proportion of our employees is an extremely painful decision but one we are required to take given our dramatically smaller operations for the next while," chief executive Calin Rovinescu said in a statement.
The carrier has halted most of its international and U.S. routes in response to the global shutdown.
States from Sweden to China to the United States have rolled out aid packages for the airline sector over the past month as borders closed and travel demand plummeted amid the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Air Canada said its cost reduction scheme aims to save least $500 million. It includes a pledge from both the CEO and chief financial officer Mike Rousseau to forego 100 per cent of their salaries, while the rest of the executive team will give up between 25 per cent and 50 per cent.
The company will draw down about $1 billion in lines of credit to provide additional liquidity for a carrier that has a $7.3 billion cash cushion to fall back on — more than the most profitable U.S. carrier, Delta Air Lines.
Earlier this month Air Canada's flight attendant union said 5,149 cabin crew would be temporarily laid off due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The newly announced layoffs do not include the earlier job reductions.
The pandemic has cost thousands of jobs in the airline sector. Transat AT Inc. has laid off at least 3,600 flight attendants while WestJet has seen 6,900 departures including early retirements, resignations and both voluntary and involuntary leaves.
WestJet said Monday it is cancelling all transatlantic and U.S. routes until May 4, extending its 30-day suspension by two more weeks.
Both Air Transat and Porter Airlines have halted all flights.

'It's going to be very difficult and very painful': Oilpatch begins layoffs and oil production cuts

Quote:

After several weeks of speculation about when the oilpatch would take significant steps in response to record low oil prices, companies in Western Canada are now beginning to pull back on oil production and layoff workers.
Heavy oil prices in Alberta have been hit the hardest, selling for under $4 US a barrel in recent days.
Bonterra Energy has started to reduce its oil production and expects a total cut of about 20 per cent, according to CEO George Fink, in an interview with CBC News. The company has already suspended its dividend for shareholders and significantly slashed the amount of capital spending it planned for this year.
"We're shutting in a fair bit of oil," said Fink. "Our capex we've pretty well turned it right off. We won't be spending anything and let the production volumes come off a little bit."
Bonterra Energy usually produces light sweet crude which sells for "top dollar" according to Fink, as it fetches close to the value of West Texas Intermediate (WTI), the North American benchmark. WTI has sold for about $20 US per barrel recently.
Fink has experienced many downturns during his career in the oilpatch, but said this is the worst he has seen because of the health risks.
"That's such a scary thing," he said. "You have to do everything you're supposed to and try to protect your employees."...…..More

'Out of time': How a pandemic and an oil crash almost sank Newfoundland and Labrador

Quote:

His province was reporting just four cases of COVID-19 when Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball wrote the prime minister to warn that his province was about to go under.
It wasn't the health crisis that had Ball so concerned — though that clearly was a major worry. It was a financial crisis that had him reaching out to Justin Trudeau for help.

In the March 20 letter, Ball warned that Newfoundland and Labrador had "run out of time," according to sources with knowledge of the events.

The province with Canada's worst balance sheet had just been told that nobody wanted to buy Newfoundland and Labrador bonds. The government's attempts to finalize both its short- and long-term borrowing programs had failed.
In other words, Newfoundland and Labrador couldn't get the money it needed in the face of a pandemic.
Sources say the provincial government was on track to run out of cash by the middle of April.
"There is a point coming soon when this province will not be able to pay its public service," a senior provincial government official said of the situation at the time.
Newfoundland and Labrador was spared that fate just days later, when the Bank of Canada stepped in with a plan to buy short-term provincial bonds to "support the liquidity and efficiency" of provincial funding markets.
"This should ease those financing constraints for the provinces, and at least give them predictability for their near-term cash flows," Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz told reporters in Ottawa Friday.
It was a move to help all provinces deal with the coronavirus fallout. But the combined impact of COVID-19 and the oil price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia was hammering resource-dependent provinces like Alberta and Saskatchewan especially hard — and their borrowing costs were rising as a result.
Poloz's move was a lifeline for Newfoundland and Labrador. Before Poloz stepped in, Ball's minority Liberal government was just days away from an emergency session of the House of Assembly to get approval to borrow $2 billion it wasn't sure it could raise.
Newfoundland and Labrador was in a weakened financial position even before the crisis. Its plight was only compounded by the collapse in oil prices and COVID-19. And as the virus spread around the world, economic contagion spread throughout the provincial economy.
Newfoundland and Labrador's most recent budget (this year's fiscal plan has been delayed indefinitely) was betting on US$63 oil. On Monday, it fell below US$23.
That price slump means hundreds of millions in revenues expected from producing fields are likely to evaporate in the coming year. And future offshore projects — including the $6.8-billion deepwater Bay du Nord prospect — have now been put on hold.
As many as 500 jobs were lost with the mothballing of Come-By-Chance oil refinery, which itself accounts for five per cent of the province's gross domestic product.
The global slump also has lowered demands for the other key provincial exports — including fish, the backbone of the province's rural economy. The upcoming tourism season, with its cruise ships and conventions, is in peril. Construction work has been suspended on the Muskrat Falls hydro project and Vale's nickel mine expansion in Labrador.
It all combines to create a cash-and-jobs crisis in a province that already had double-digit unemployment and no obvious floor under its free-fall in revenue. Newfoundland and Labrador doesn't receive equalization payments. Its balance sheet is completely exposed.
The cash situation is so bad, Ball warned publicly last week that his government might not be able to participate in any cost-shared programs Ottawa may use to help spur the economic recovery.
"You cannot compare Newfoundland and Labrador to other provinces," he said. "We are unique."
In the hours after the provincial legislature swiftly passed five pieces of legislation to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, Ball warned about a looming "economic crisis" expected to follow the public health emergency — a crisis that almost certainly would require another plea to Ottawa for help.
"I think every single industry — every single key industry that's driving this economy right now — is having difficulty," Ball told reporters in St. John's.

"The federal government will have to be there to help provinces like Newfoundland and Labrador."

This couldn't be working out any better for the lovers of a world economy

Trudeau says Parliament needs to sit again for more COVID-19 relief

Quote:

OTTAWA — The federal government will summon Parliament again to approve more spending to help the country to combat the financial fallout from COVID-19, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says.

Trudeau said Wednesday that he's planning to call Parliament back for another sitting to pass additional items in what he described as perhaps the biggest economic bailout and social program this country has ever seen.
The value of the program is already over $200 billion, with almost half of that estimated to be direct financial aid, although the Liberals haven't yet unveiled the price projections for a wage-subsidy program vastly larger than the one they first promised.
Conservatives have pointed out that the emergency legislation Parliament passed just last week didn't allow for the scale of the subsidies the Liberals are promising to help employers keep people on their payrolls.
The government has said that all companies will get 75 per cent of salaries covered, if they've lost 30 per cent of their revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
That's a departure from the original plan to cover just 10 per cent of salaries for small businesses.
Finance Minister Bill Morneau is to provide more details on the wage subsidy, including the costs, this afternoon in Toronto, but Trudeau said Wednesday morning that the money will go to companies that aren't publicly funded.
He also said companies that receive the cash need to do whatever they can to pay the remaining 25 per cent of their employees' wages.
Before Trudeau spoke, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer called on the government to clear up confusion over who is eligible for the wage subsidy, arguing the legislation as written doesn't jibe with the Liberals' pledge about who can get the help.
He said his party is ready to return to Parliament to amend the law if needed, but the problem shouldn't have happened in the first place.
"It's up to the government to decide how to proceed, but if they want to provide Canadians with the program they made in their announcement, they would have to amend their own legislation," Scheer said during a press conference in his home city of Regina.
"It's up to them to decide whether or not that's what they want to do or how long they want to wait to do that."
The Liberals didn't put a timeline on when MPs and senators will be asked to return to Ottawa to pass any new legislation — a process that, under the practice they used last time, will require picking a small group of parliamentarians to review and vote on measures.
Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said the government felt it was important for Parliament to have its voice heard on the measures when asked whether the move would delay people receiving badly needed financial aid.
"The magnitude of the measures that we know are necessary means that it would be a good idea to bring Parliament back to work on them," she said.
Any worker who receives the wage subsidy can't at the same time receive a $2,000-a-month emergency benefit aimed at those who have lost their sources of income, Trudeau said.
"It's one or the other. You can't get both of these benefits," he said, speaking outside his Ottawa residence.
An online application for the benefit will open as planned on April 6, Trudeau said, promising unspecified measures will be in place to avoid overwhelming federal systems.
Some 2.1 million people have applied for employment insurance benefits within the last two weeks, Employment Minister Carla Qualtrough said — a number that is dramatically higher than what the program normally sees.
So far, federal workers have processed more than 430,000 of those claims, and a new system being implemented Wednesday will help quickly address the backlog, she said during a midday press conference.
Anyone who has already been approved for EI benefits will be moved over to the new emergency benefit, Qualtrough said.

Has he not already heard that there is a virus pandemic going on here in Canukistan and how are all of those politicians going to stay six feet apart from one another in parliament? Turdeau knows that this is all a hoax and a joke so why can't most of the Canadian lemmings not see also that this is all just a joke? Hello out there in la-la land.

In other news - there is increasing evidence to indicate that Our idiot Boy is going to offer the same QUALITY of aid during the Wuhan Crisis that Ontari-owe premier Dalton McGinty gave to fired auto workers and Our idiot Boy is going to offer the SAME QUALITY of aid that he offered to oil workers right after buying and shutting down Kinder Morgan pipeline!


For those who do not recall - LIE-beral McGinty offered up $100 million dollars for re-training of auto workers and then hung so many STRING on access to the cash that ONLY FIVE PERCENT OF IT was ever used!


And no doubt some of the western posters on this site can describe better than I how it feels to have an ENTIRE INDUSTRY shut down by bigoted LIE-berals - and to have the LIE-berals offer low interest LOANS to people who were loosing their houses due to lack of income!

As I have said many times in the past. It is time to stop listening to politicians anymore. They lie and spread bull chit. They have no clue as to how to tell the truth. I guess that is one of the requirements when becoming a politician. Learn right away as to how to go about conning and scamming we the people and steal their tax dollars. Sadly, there are just too many Canadian lemmings out there who will believe anything their dear comrade leaders and the lying media will tell them. The economy is going for the shits because of our dear leader politicians who appear to only want to tax more, give us more red tape, and most of all, try and take our freedoms away. Even our right to assembly is now gone. Sad indeed.

Why do they need more tax dollars? They will only keep lying to us anyway which is pretty much most of the time, and they can still get paid to keep their useless good for nothing jobs.

WELL GOSH! After months of sitting home doing nothing while collecting full pay as neglected govt work piles up


our civil service union HOGS will suddenly find themselves back at work and being rushed off their feet by desperate LIE-berals



who NEED numbers crunched and digested YESTERDAY so they can craft a suitable spring 2021 budget!



Just THINK of all those T-4 slips piling up in Ottawa and only a handful of HOGS to handle all that paper!


And just think of the effort needed to keep track of who will be getting that $200 billion dollars in govt aid- with HOGS being under the



gun to adhere to a completely SCHIZOPHRENIC set of guidelines - meaning they must be generous to Cdns in need and must be



FRUGAL so there is NO WASTE of scarce govt resources AND they must be mindful of LIE-beral VOTE BUYING NEEDS - so that



LIE-beral PALS get the lions share of aid!



Then recall that Our idiot Boy FAILED in his power grab - meaning our Parliament will NOT be closed until December 2021

and HE WILL therefore have to produce a coherent budget to be voted on by the opposition parties in spring 2021!


With the fate of the LIE-beral minority govt hanging in the balance!


Just THINK of the MAD RUSH of number crunching and Fairy Tale story telling that LIE-berals are going to have to engage in


IF Our idiot Boy is going to retain his place on the political stage!


The political situation is so complex and confusing at this time that it will be GIVING HEAD ACHES to Conservatives!


Conservatives are going to have to wade through an IMMENSE pile of papers to seek out those critical facts that will be



MOST DAMAGING to Our idiot Boy!


And as we know from the comments of former Clerk of the Privy Council Michael Wernick - our civil service union HOGS



ARE HIGHLY PARTISAN! The BIG QUESTION here is will the HOGS line up blindly behind Our idiot Boy?


Or will the HOGS switch allegiance to the NDPees and Singh?


In related news - is it not a VALID COMMENTARY on the NDPee political position that NO CDN NEWS MEDIA


has bothered to ask for any sort of comment from Singh - either about the now forgotten rail blockades or anything about the



current Wuhan Pestilence problem!


Singh has become the forgotten man - hopelessly haunting the parking lot of our shut down Parliament!


And dreaming of the future day when somebody will put a camera in his face one more time!
