Ottawa- MP Gord Johns: "Thanks to CBC’s The National for last night’s feature on the personal impact of the toxic drug emergency in Canada on Members of Parliament. And thank you to my colleague Jenny Kwan and Liberal and Conservative MP’s for their heartfelt contribution to Catherine Cullen’s report. This crisis touches the lives of all Canadians and is surely deserving of a non-partisan, multi-faceted solution that puts politics aside. As I said to Catherine, Canada has expended less than 1% of the funds on the toxic drug crisis as we allocated to help Canadians through the COVID-19 pandemic. We desperately need a multi-faceted plan based on the directions set out by experts, including public health practitioners, law enforcement and those with lived and living experience. I urge you to watch this report and share it with others"
