Liberals Call for All-Party Support to Pass Bill 5 Before the Holiday Season

December 5, 2018

Winnipeg - Manitoba Liberals have called for all-party support to pass Bill 5 - The Mental Health Amendment and Personal Health Information Amendment Act - before the house rises on Thursday, December 6th.

"There is an urgent need to pass this legislation as we approach the holiday season so that people who are suicidal and seeking help from an emergency room, receive that help, and ensure they aren't being sent home without family members being notified," said Manitoba Liberal Health Critic, Jon Gerrard.

The holiday season can be one of the hardest times of the year for some Manitobans. The immediate passing of Bill 5 has the potential to save lives if passed before the house rises.
