On iPolitics.ca on Thursday, June 15, 2023, Editor in Chief Marco Vigliotti published a piece about Bill C-22, “Sen. McPhedran calls on Liberals to reverse course on clawback amendment to Disability Benefit bill”.
The Liberals are being urged by Senator Marilou McPhedran to reconsider scrapping the Disability Benefit Bill amendment, which aims to prevent private insurers from reclaiming new payments from the government. Bill C-22, which proposes a new benefit payment for disabled Canadians, is on its way back to the Senate for final approval. Refusing to include all six amendments means that “[thousands of disabled Canadians will] never see a cent of this new candidate disability benefit.”, argues McPherdan.
“It’s not a good look, when the whole message around this new law is to… actually provide to put money into the hands of people with disabilities because they desperately need the money,” she continued.
