Metro Edmonton, January 31, 2018
Edmontonians will line up at MacEwan University Thursday in hopes of face time with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Moms Stop the Harm, a group of parents who have lost children to drug overdoses, plans to have 10-15 members at the town hall to challenge the PM on the opioid crisis.
“It’s very upsetting for us how silent he has been on this issue,” said group member Petra Schulz. “There are thousands of Canadian families like ours that are mourning the loss of a loved one, and the prime minister has not even spoken on the issue in the house.”
