The Thompson Local News

According to the Manitoba Liberal Party (MLP), Premier Brian Pallister and his Progressive Conservative government are ignoring a meth crisis in Manitoba.


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.


Gerrard added that the MLP has sources who say it's better to be arrested if you have an addiction to crystal meth, as they’ll get better treatment in jail


The release concluded saying that the government needs to follow up with meaningful action to ensure that the province has a system for treating addiction that is humane and safe.


Below is the three-step plan that the MLP has put forward to help combat this current crisis.
