In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - May 6, 2015

Health Minister Rona Ambrose and Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney respond to questions about the federal government's bill regarding supervised injection sites. Bill C-2 would establish criteria that must be met in applications for proposed sites. The proposed legislation was introduced in response to the Supreme Court of Canada's 2011 decision that allowed Insite, North America's first and only legally sanctioned supervised injection site, to remain open.
The ministers are joined by senior Health Canada officials Diane Labelle and Hilary Geller and RCMP Chief Superintendent Eric Slinn. (May 6, 2015) UPDATE: Bill C-2 received royal assent on June 18.
