Community Forum on the National Anti-Drug Strategy (Toronto, Ontario) sign now

Whereas, in October 2007, the federal government released its National Anti-Drug Strategy that incudes prevention, treatment and enforcement approaches to "reduce the supply of and demand for illicit drugs" and "address the crime associated with illegal drugs;"





Whereas, new federal funding for prevention and treatment announced as part of the National Anti-Drug Strategy is a welcome investment as both areas are seriously under-resourced;





Whereas, research demonstrating the efficacy of harm reduction is well established;





Whereas, good public policy should be based on science and evidence, not on ideology;





Whereas, the U.S. style "war on drugs" has been an abject failure;





Whereas, drug use can be more effectively addressed as a health issue rather than as a criminal issue;





Whereas, legal drugs such as alcohol create far more health, social, economic and criminal harms than illegal drugs;





Therefore, be it resolved that the undersigned urge the Parliament of Canada to develop a comprehensive strategy for all drugs, including alcohol and the non-medical use of prescription drugs, and that this comprehensive approach include evidence-based prevention, harm reduction, treatment and enforcement strategies.

    The policies of the current government have been tried-and-failed for over fifty years. The lives of people who use drugs should not be used as ideological pawns for this or that government. Any policy that has influence on the lives of users should be ba
