Poilievre announces plan to strengthen sentencing for dangerous weapons and drugs in hospitals

Conservative Party of Canada Leader Pierre Poilievre announced in B.C. on Tuesday the introduction of the Safe Hospitals Act. “It will create an aggravating factor for sentencing for anyone who brings and illegal and unauthorized weapon into a hospital. It will take away the discretion from the federal health minister under the Controlled and Substances Act to decriminalize illicit drugs like fentanyl and meth, crack and heroin in hospitals,” Poilievre said.
