June 1, 2022 at 11:37 am  Federal, Politics

Ministers Carolyn Bennett (mental health and addictions), David Lametti (justice), Randy Boissonnault (tourism), Omar Alghabra (transport), Pablo Rodriguez (Canadian Heritage and Quebec lieutenant), Diane Lebouthillier (national revenue), Mélanie Joly (foreign affairs) and Marc Miller (Crown-Indigenous relations), chief government whip Steven MacKinnon, and government House leader Mark Holland speak briefly with reporters on Parliament Hill as the federal Liberal party cabinet holds its weekly caucus meeting. They are asked about British Columbia being granted a three-year exemption under the federal Controlled Drugs and Substances Act to decriminalize possession of small amounts of certain illicit drugs for personal use. They also face questions about calls to lift COVID-19 border restrictions that are still in place.
