We, the citizens of Newfoundland Labrador, petition the Government of Newfoundland Labrador, specifically, the Department of Justice and Department of Health and Community Services, to implement a Protection of Children Abusing Drugs Act, PCHAD, as implemented in the province of Alberta. With the legal age of consent being 16, this creates health and safety issues for our youth as it relates to determining appropriate in- patient services for treatment for children between the ages of 16-18. This act would address the need for parental and or legal guardian input in determining appropriate patient care, while the patient is suffering from addiction or mental health issues, while still taking into consideration the input of the patient.
