A motion introduced earlier this year in the House of Commons by NDP Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus – calling for a national action plan on suicide prevention – passed in Ottawa May 2.

Prior to Motion 174 passing, Angus, fellow NDP MP Don Davies, and suicide prevention expert Jack Hicks presented a united front at a news conference, calling for all-party support.
