Dr. Jon Gerrard, a member of the Liberal caucus and the MLA for the River Heights area of Winnipeg, addressed the issue in the legislature in October, asking why the Health Minister hasn’t responded to the issue since being named to his current role despite having called meth a "serious issue" when he was in opposition.
