FYI this lady is just speaking for herself. most Filipinos are independent and knows how to tighten their belt in circumstances like these. She was indeed an embarrassment to the Philippines Just send her back to the Philippines might she will understand what's really going on then by that she should learn how to appreciate what she's receiving.

She doesn't deserve any of these help from canadian government. She doesn't really know what she's talking about. I'd just hope Canadian government won't see Filipinos are all like hers, where in the hell you got the nerve to say those rubbish. you should be ashamed of yourself lady.

It's not an obligation by the govt.of Canada if you can't send money to your family in the Philippines well it's better thank the Canadian govt. that they give us CERB rather than nothing .Me also has been laid off my job but still thanking the govt. For these emergency benifits if the high cost of living in BC is too high well face the reality coz you live there. And it's your problem dont carry some of other Filipinos on your behalf.
