Parliament Video: Throne Speech response - will there be support for overdose crisis?

On December 2, 2021 MP Jenny Kwan posed more questions to Liberal and Conservatives Members on their responses to the Speech from the Throne:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Madam Speaker, the government recognizes there is a great need in terms of health emergencies. Right now, we have an overdose crisis in my riding of Vancouver East. More people are dying from overdoses than they are dying from the pandemic.

Will the member work with the NDP and support our call to decriminalize and ensure that there is a safe supply so we can save lives?"
