IN THE NEWS- MP Gord Johns shows support for Mothers' rally in Parksville calling for drug policy changes to stop opioid crisis

It was an emotional day for the mothers who attended the national Day of Action in Parksville to urge the federal government to change its drug policy to prevent opioid-related overdose deaths. 

MP Gord Johns attended the event and expressed his sympathy to the mothers who lost their children to drug toxicity. He told the crowd there's no simple answer or solution to the problem. 

"We need to listen to the experts," said Johns. "It should be evidence-based, science-based and we need an expert task force on such issues. That should be the guiding light in how we respond".
