Mr. Speaker, tonight we will vote on the respect for communities act, which would give residents, law enforcement, and community leaders a say when safe drug injection sites want to open in their areas.
Unfortunately, the Liberals have voted against giving communities this say, while the Liberal leader wants to open more injection sites across the country.
We all know that drug injection houses allow the use of dangerous and addictive drugs. We also know that drugs promote family breakup. They tear families apart, promote criminal behaviour, and ruin lives.
Can the Minister of Health please update the House on the latest developments on this important legislation?
