Coming Soon: Safe Injection Sites

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Last July, Toronto approved the establishment of three safe injection sites and now, in an effort to battle opioid overdose deaths, the province has agreed to fund those sites and one in Ottawa. Toronto Councillor Joe Cressy has been a strong advocate for the public health benefits of such facilities. He joins The Agenda with Ahmed Bayoumi, the co-author of a 2012 report on the harm reduction potential of safe injection sites in Ottawa and Toronto.
