Trudeau Won’t Say Whether Liberals Will Delay Cannabis Legalization

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau left the door open Wednesday to a possible delay in enacting his government’s cannabis legalization bill — a move recommended by a Senate committee concerned with Indigenous issues.

In a report issued Tuesday, the Senate aboriginal peoples committee called on the government to put off legalizing marijuana for up to a year so broader consultations on the matter could take place with Indigenous communities.

The report said the government’s “atrocious” lack of proper consultation on its cannabis bill undermines its claims to be trying to have a new and better relationship with Indigenous peoples.
