The Opposition Progressive Conservatives have raised concerns regularly in the legislature and earlier this month a protest was staged in front of Province House with more than 100 people calling for more supports and treatments for those with addictions.
Currie says he hears
the concerns and he plans to release a list of recommendations from the
chief mental health and addictions officer, Dr. Rhonda Matters – a list
he says he will act upon immediately.
He isn't specific about a timeline, but says it won't be months or years for a response.
Currie says Matters has spent the last five months meeting with frontline staff to get an understanding of all the issues.
