Bill to amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act

For Immediate Release:

Today, I am honoured to introduce a bill that 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. Specifically, these substances would include: methamphetamines, ecstasy, fentanyl and W-18.

These substances are a deadly scourge on our communities, which are now plagued by a full-blown epidemic of fentanyl overdoses. Those that traffic and produce these substances must face the full extent of the law.

I will always work to ensure the health and safety of all Canadians, especially my constituents in Markham-Unionville. I hope all members of the House of Commons will support this bill.
Bob Saroya, M.P.
