Second Reading

Consideration resumed of the motion:

That this bill be now read a second time.

to which the following amendment was moved:

"The House declines to give the bill a second reading and:

(1) notes the overwhelming medical, expert and overseas evidence that this bill will not work to address addiction, decrease unemployment or create jobs; and

(2) calls on the Government to reject the bill and instead pursue evidence-based policy and invest in quality health and social services".
