Justin Trudeau has said that he will look at the proposals in a private member’s bill that seeks to decriminalize hard drugs, although the prime minister does not believe it’s the solution “right now.” Trudeau, however, did not rule out implementing this policy at some point over the Liberal government’s tenure. Speaking to reporters, Trudeau said “we will take a look at the proposals, but as we said many times, we believe in harm reduction, we believe in evidence-based policy. Our approach is to ensure that people get the support they need. We do not believe that decriminalizing hard drugs is the solution right now.”
