OTTAWA, March 5 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Association of Chiefs of
Police congratulates the Federal Government on the launch of the National
Anti-Drug Strategy Mass Media Campaign and welcomes its leadership in
advancing this very important component of a balanced National Drug Strategy.
Canada's Chiefs of Police and Executive Leaders have been working toward this
type of clear and emphatic messaging about the danger of drug use for many
years in order to address our collective drug education and drug abuse
prevention efforts. We are therefore eager to support and advance this
campaign which will help us all in building the safe and healthy communities
We are seeing the results of an intentional, prioritized and funded
strategy, and CACP is pleased to be a stakeholder with the Government of
Canada through Public Safety Canada, Health Canada, and CCSA as the National
Anti Drug Strategy (NADS) continues to move forward at an accelerated pace.
CACP looks forward to the government's continued and sustained attention
to this important issue that impacts every community in Canada.
Building safe and healthy communities is a priority for CACP; our
partnership with parents will be strengthened through this campaign as we
provide additional information, opportunity, and even the inspiration to have
conversations with our children about the harmful effects of drugs.
