Bill

C-37: An Act to amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and to make related amendments to other Acts

Senate Amendment.

Vote

Yea.

Rationale

Our government must continue to respond to this tragic crisis in a way that is comprehensive, collaborative and compassionate. This legislation proposes to ease the burden on communities that wish to open a supervised consumption site, while putting stronger measures in place to stop the flow of illicit drugs and strengthening the systems in place for licensed controlled substances facilities. And we will continue to work with our partners across the country to continue bringing forward evidence-based solutions to save lives and ensure that 2017 is the year that marks a turn on this national public health crisis.

This vote was on several Senate amendments, several of which the Government accepted.

Result

Passed.
