Statement on Mental Health and Addictions

Kelowna is experiencing a mental health and addictions crisis which is effecting our entire community. Unfortunately, we are not the only community facing these issues across the country.

I am calling on the Trudeau Liberals to acknowledge the addictions crisis across Canada, and take solid action. We must amend the Canadian Drugs and Substance Strategy, and directly fund Addictions Treatment and Recovery Centres.

We need to work together on implementing actionable items that help people get out of addiction. This is a gap.
