The Overdose Crisis

The overdose crisis in BC, fueled by a toxic drug supply, is an ongoing public health emergency that requires urgent action. We highly encourage anyone living in BC to support decriminalization of simple possession of drugs and increased access to opioid agonist therapies as means to save lives. A simple way to do so is to write a letter to your MLA asking for action to be taken on these topics. You can find your MLA and their contact information here.

To understand why this is so urgent and why we are proposing decriminalization and opioid agonist therapies, you can read our policy paper or executive summary. For a simple overview of the topic, check out our infographics which can be shared on social media and for further reading we have a resources page.
