The CERB is fueling Vancouver's Gang War
Last summer Drea Humphries from Rebel Media discovered that a spike in fatal overdoses in the DTES was directly linked to the CERB. Drug addicts got more money and bought more drugs. Drug dealers were telling their customers how to apply for the benefit and now the profits they are making is off the charts. Whenever there is that much money to be made, criminals will kill for it.
The purpose of the CERB was to give emergency assistance to people who lost their job due to the draconian lockdown. Giving drug addicts more money to spend on drugs has created a spike in the gang violence. Removing the incentive to work has seen a spike in uncontrolled debt. As Rand Paul said, we need to remove the barriers to commerce and get back to work.
