Drug overdoses a target of LGTIRL CPC Candidate Michael Barrett
Conservative Party of Canada Candidate in Leeds-Grenville, Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes Michael Barrett says should his party form government one of the local issues that would be addressed is drug overdoses.
He says it’s a problem that affects everyone young and old, from all walks of life.
When it comes to youth, he says centres will pop up across the country, including in the riding.
The candidate, who won the riding in a byelection in 2018, then again in the general election of 2019, says the commitment from the Conservatives is for $325 million dollars over three years for 1000 treatment beds and he says they will build 50 recovery centres across Canada.
He calls the commitment unprecedented, but necessary.
