Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland told BNN that Canadians’ family savings is “pre-loaded stimulus.” She says in the best-case scenario, Canadians would choose to spend some of their money on their own.

Sam Eskenasi says the government has no money of its own, and that Freeland’s comments leave the door open to additional redistributions of Canadians’ wealth.
