C-47: An Act respecting cannabis and to amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, the Criminal Code and other Acts.
Bill C-47 is delivering on our campaign commitment to accede to the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The ATT is about protecting people from arms. It ensures countries effectively regulate the international trade of arms, so they are not used to support terrorism, international organized crime, gender-based violence, human rights abuses, or violations of international humanitarian law. Joining the ATT will allow the government to be more effective in its quest for a more transparent and accountable arms trade, not only here in Canada but throughout the world.
