Questions and Statements
During Question Period on Wednesday, Mike alerted the Minister to increasing deaths from poisoned drug supply in his riding. He asked when the government would move toward decriminalizing drugs to save lives.
Elizabeth’s question on Wednesday was the first that she was able to ask the Prime Minister since 2019. For two years, Greens have been blocked from asking questions on Wednesdays, when the Prime Minister answers all questions. After much negotiation, Greens are finally allowed again to ask questions on Wednesdays. Elizabeth pressed the Prime Minister to commit to offering reliable, convenient and low-carbon ground transportation across the country, in the name of Reconciliation.
