Enforce warning labels on alcohol: NDP

Six years after Parliament passed a motion requiring labels on alcohol warning of the dangers of drinking while pregnant, Judy Wasylycia-Leis says she is frustrated by government inaction.

"Parliament passed my motion by an overwhelming 217-11 vote," the New Democrat member of Parliament from Winnipeg and former health critic said on Monday.

"Yet I am still regularly presenting petitions in the House from Canadians pleading for government action. This defies the will of Parliament and the wishes of Canadians — certainly the children and families who continue to be devastated by fetal alcohol spectrum disorder."
