We sent joint letters with SARM to federal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and provincial Justice Minister Gord Wyant on drug-impaired driving.
These letters were also followed up with in-person meetings with both ministers and our colleagues at SARM.
We raised the issue of municipal workplace safety and testing with Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan.
We attended a consultation meeting with the Minister of Government Relations, along with SARM and representatives for provincial government departments and individual municipalities. You may wish to review the memo and summary we received following this consultation.
The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) have also been actively engaged on this file. They recently released a primer on cannabis legalization, and their website includes plenty of information you may wish to reference. An FCM technical working group, which includes two SUMA staff members, is also preparing a document to help you prepare for legalization. We will share that document when it is available.
