Bill to decriminalize hard drugs across Canada fails after some Liberals oppose the move

LSN: 'A bill to decriminalize small-scale possession of hard drugs across Canada flopped in Parliament after numerous Liberals joined Conservatives to oppose the legislation.

'Bill C-216, which was proposed by far-left New Democrat MP Gord Johns, was struck down in a 248-71 vote by Parliament in its Second Reading on Wednesday. While the bill was opposed by the entire Conservative caucus, and many of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals, 14 Liberals, including three committee chairs, voted alongside the New Democratic Party in favor of the radical proposal.

'The vote to nationally decriminalize so-called small-scale possession of hard drugs, including cocaine, fentanyl, and heroin, came just one day after the Trudeau government announced a similar policy will be going into effect in the province of British Columbia on January 1, 2023.'
