A message about overdose prevention and an opportunity to petition the health minister

A message from Parkdale Community Legal Services (from their Tweets on Twitter ): We’re devastated to hear the news of 7 people in our neighbourhood dying of overdoses in the last 10 days. Our Health Minister’s decision to delay the opening of 3 Overdose Prevention Sites, including one located across the street from our office is unacceptable #onpoli#parkdale

The Parkdale OPS was to open on Monday and would have saved lives. Since the start of Insite several years ago, evidence overwhelmingly supports the use of safe consumption sites to reduce harm, death, and increase access to a range of treatments and supports. #HarmReduction

Our City, our health care providers, frontline workers, the Supreme Court of Canada, our law enforcement officers and all of us understand that needless deaths are caused by unequal access to health services and stigma associated with drug use and addiction.

Health Minister @celliottability’s decision is clearly wrong, and urgent action is needed. Contact the Minister to explain why her decision must be changed immediately: christine.elliott@pc.ola.org Queen’s Park 416-327-4300 Constituency 905-750-0019 #ONpoli#opssavelives

Our friends at @AIDSLAWhave prepared an open letter and are seeking organizational sign-ons till Aug 23. The letter will be delivered to Premier Ford & Minister Elliott on Aug 31, which marks International Overdose Awareness Day. Add your org’s signature: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FV2L5H2
