McLeod fights against trafficking of fentanyl

We all need to come together and contribute to finding solutions to the fentanyl crisis

OTTAWA – Cathy McLeod, Member of Parliament for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo, seconded Private Members Bill C-324 on Dec. 1 that will stop the illicit production or trafficking of substances including fentanyl.

“I was pleased to support my colleague Bob Saroya’s initiative today in Parliament and will be encouraging all Parliamentarians to get behind this Bill,” stated McLeod. “We all need to come together and contribute to finding solutions to the fentanyl crisis and holding those responsible to account.”

Bill C-324 would amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act in order to prohibit the possession, production, sale or importation of anything, if it is known to be used in the production or traffic of certain substances included in schedule I of that act. These substances would include: methamphetamines, ecstasy, fentanyl and W-18.

“These substances are a deadly plague on our communities, which are now dealing with a full-blown epidemic of fentanyl overdoses. Further, I believe that those that traffic and produce these substances must face the full extent of the law,” concluded McLeod.
