Poilievre might not have solutions to Canada’s opioid epidemic, but Senator Dalphond does
To be clear: amending Sec. 40 (3) of the CPCA will not end Canada’s opioid epidemic. Far from it. But Bill S-256 is a concrete solution to a significant part of a much larger societal issue—and that’s more than what Pierre Poilievre has proposed thus far.
