House of Commons Committee Releases Report on Canada’s Drug Strategy – HIV/AIDS Policy & Law Review 7(2-3)

On 17 May 2001, the House of Commons created a Special Committee on Non-Medical Use of Drugs based on a motion introduced by Randy White, Canadian Alliance MP (Langley–Abbottsford) and gave it a very broad mandate to study “the factors underlying or relating to the nonmedical use of drugs in Canada” and to propose recommendations aimed at reducing “the dimensions of the problem involved in such use.” In December 2002, the Committee released its report, entitled Policy for the New Millennium:Working Together to Redefine Canada’s Drug Strategy. The report contains many good recommendations, but fails to deal adequately with the fundamental harms caused by Canada’s drug laws and federal government inaction.
