Health committee  Do you mean smoking cannabis?

Ian Culbert

Health committee  CPHA would prefer that the legal drinking age across the country be 19, because we know that with the evidence regarding intoxicated driving and accidents, that one year makes a huge difference. When we once again look at the whole picture, to have alcohol being treated different

Health committee  That was Colorado state, consumption of cannabis-infused brownies. Now that wasn't the death. The death was the result of the person jumping off a hotel balcony, so it's an associated death, but it wasn't metabolically related to the consumption.

Health committee  Certainly. As my colleagues have mentioned, 21% of 15- to 19-year-olds are using. If you set that age higher, at 21 or 25, you're forcing those young people to continue to go to the illegal market to obtain their product. It's not like they are going to stop. Complete prohibition

Health committee  The risk of delay is added confusion amongst the population. We've signalled that we are moving in this direction. There's always that perception of a need for more time. The foundational work in Bill C-45 is on the right track. The provinces and territories have known since Octo

Health committee  Absolutely, the time for action is now. As mentioned before, parents, educators, and health professionals need to know what the landscape is going to be going forward. We don't know that. Ontario is the first jurisdiction to announce a plan for how it's going to roll out, and—

Health committee  Absolutely. As I said in my remarks, we have high levels of use right now. We need to be doing something right now, and until we decriminalize the product—legalize and regulate it—educators can't have the conversation. Everyone is muzzled because it's still illegal. We need to mo

Health committee  Branding can be important to the bottom line of the private sector, plain and simple. It's why you make something look attractive, so that people know, “I want the product in the red package because that's the one my dad uses”, whatever that product may be. Nothing about plain

Health committee  As I referred to earlier, it is about having conversations and normalizing the conversation about substance use and not limiting it just to cannabis. As a society, we are very uncomfortable. We don't like talking about sex, we're not great talking about alcohol, and we have a sig

Health committee  There are numerous players in addition to the federal government when it comes to education, so $9 million is a good start. Obviously, there are all the provinces and territories, and we have to differentiate between the public education component, which comes down to the nuts an

Health committee  Good morning, Mr. Chair and committee members. Thank you for the invitation to present to you today. I will preface my comments this morning by noting that, throughout my remarks, my references to cannabis use relate to recreational use, not the use of cannabis for medical purpo

Finance committee  Thank you for the question. There are a few different layers there. There is a lot of good data on return on investment for a lot of preventive upstream interventions. For example, for every dollar we invest in vaccination we save $16. I mentioned before road and vehicle safety;

Finance committee  Thank you very much. Good afternoon, and thank you for the opportunity to appear before you today. Since this is the finance committee that is studying investments in health, I'd like to start with an interesting financial fact. For every dollar spent on mental health and addic
