The pandemic is in for the long haul, or so warned the Prime Minister as if this were new "news" worthy of overtaking the airwaves.
"You know the Conservatives were just spinning when they heard that", Desserud said.
Numerous commitments had been previously voiced by the Liberal government, particularly since the issue landed on the public's radar in earnest with the death of an unarmed Black man, George Floyd, under the knee of a police officer in the U.S.in May.
The rookie Conservative MP said early Wednesday evening that the speech had little in it that addressed the concerns of rural communities, including the agricultural sector, and will come at a cost that Canadian taxpayers can not afford.
Kenney said that financial commitments in the speech will leave people paying in the long run, and the only way for these promises to get the proper financial backing is to further support the existing sector so that money can be pumped into the economy.
"Canadians have seen this government express intentions to tackle racism and hate in the past but have been repeatedly disappointed", Fareed Khan, founder of the activist group Canadians United Against Hate, said in a statement.

"Yesterday alone, we had well over 1,000", said Trudeau, who appeared on TV screens in a dark suit and tie, standing in front of four Canadian flags and a desk.
Before debate on the speech, Conservative MP Michael Barrett was up on his feet saying his privileges had been breached by the redactions in documents related to the WE affair, showing that the Opposition does not intend to let that issue go. "They want to stop burning cow dung".
Earlier this year, Canada projected its largest budget deficit since World War Two - C$343bn, with more than C$212bn in direct Covid-19 support.
Those included redoubling the fight against online hate, diversifying the public service and supporting Black Canadian culture and businesses along with new investments and action on reforming police services and the criminal justice system. That's the sort of thinking that will get us the same old problems.
The announcement was made during the throne speech on Wednesday.
He trumped the federal government's COVID alert app, asked Canadians to get their flu shots and to continue to wear a mask and practice physical distancing. I know we can do it, because we've already done it once before.
