Bill C-211 passed its’ third reading in the House of Commons of Commons on June 16.
Cariboo-Prince George MP Todd Doherty says he challenged them last Friday as he stood in the House to recognize four first responders who had passed away last week, and that in the past 48 hours there were two more.
“I challenged us all that day that we must do better, we must be better, and today (Friday) I think we’re there. There’s a lot of work yet to be done, but today we’re sending a message that those lives matter and that those who fight for us, we’re fighting for them.”
Bill C-211 which calls for a national framework for sufferers of post-traumatic disorder (PTSD) has now been referred to the Senate for consideration with the hope Doherty says that it will pass and become law.
