Liberal MPs resist revealing pharma payments for 'safer' supply opioids

The Liberals are accused of producing and distributing hard drugs that end up on the black market through their safe drug supply initiatives, and opposition MPs are demanding the contracts and agreements related to the procurement of these highly-addictive opioids.

Conservative MP Garnett Genuis accused the Liberal government of causing the diversion of highly addictive opioids onto Canadian streets at a House of Commons committee meeting on Wednesday.

He sponsored a motion requesting the “production of all contracts, agreements or memoranda of understanding to which the Government of Canada is a party signed since January 1, 2016,” as reported by Blacklock’s Reporter.

“There are contracts involving this government and big pharmaceutical companies involved in producing and selling dangerous hard drugs which then end up on our streets,” Genuis proclaimed.

“Big pharmaceutical companies are involved in supplying hard drugs that are used as part of the government’s so-called ‘safe supply’ program,” he furthered. “These programs are a failure. We oppose them. In any event, we believe the public has a right to see the contracts.”

Despite police confirmation that taxpayer-funded narcotics are being diverted to the black market for drug dealers’ profit, Liberal MPs opposed disclosing these contracts.

The RCMP testified in April at a Commons health committee that “safer” supply opioids are being diverted to the back market, confirming that organized crime is trafficking illicit substances and prescription drugs.

Data shows that the oxymoronic initiatives of “harm reduction” and “safer supply” of highly addictive and potent opioids have wreaked havoc on Canadian cities and towns since its announcement in 2016.

The Canadian Drugs and Substances Strategy (CDSS) was formally launched in 2017. A tabulation of the strategy in the five years it ran, from 2017 to 2022, shows that overdose and drug-related deaths continue to rise in Canada despite the federal government spending more than $800 million in a failed attempt to curb the opioid and overdose crisis.

“[R]ates of substance use and related harm continue to rise,” reads a key takeaway in the August 2023 program evaluation.

A December 2023 federal update shows that the Liberals have committed over $1 billion worth of taxpayer funds to this failed initiative.
