Adventures in Second-Guessing the Obvious

Up for Debate: Canada’s Response to the Opioid Crisis

The motion: the Canadian government has not done its due diligence in responding to the opioid crisis

Debaters from the UWO Debate Society take to the mics to argue about the efficiency and efficacy of the Canadian government’s response to the opioid crisis. Has Canada done enough, quickly enough, to be considered ‘responsible’?
