I just wanted to correct the record a little bit here with respect to some comments made by my colleague, Dr. Carrie.
The task force on legalization of marijuana travelled across Canada. I think they were five or six months on the job. They had 20,000 submissions from all walks of life, all professions, all areas. Under this section, on what we heard, they dealt specifically with people working in safety sensitive positions, such as health care workers, law enforcement personnel, and employees in transportation, construction, and resource extraction industries. They heard about the challenges associated with providing reasonable accommodation of employees who use cannabis for medical purposes. Employer groups were in to see them calling for more guidance from federal, provincial, and territorial governments about appropriate workplace drug use and drug testing.
So I think there was extensive consultation by the government through the task force in the area of testimony that Mr. Keith is bringing to us and others have today.
Again, we are dealing with implementation at this point.
I guess that's my question to you, Mr. Keith. With concerns being heard by the task force, the concerns you bring forward.... As I've already told you, there is already case law, and there seem to be permissions in place for employers for safety sensitive positions to advise in advance that someone will be tested and to implement those. You said we're partially there.
In terms of implementation, I heard you suggest we should more comprehensively address the issue in the Labour Code. Is there anything more you would add to those five recommendations?
