Health ministers and first responders meet to address overdose crisis
At Vancouver's Fire Hall No. 2, the number of calls coming in related to opioid overdoses has jumped 30 per cent this year over last.
“Our teams, we can't sustain that,” said B.C. Minister of Health Terry Lake.
Although two safe injection sites currently exist in Vancouver, one at Insite and a smaller one at the Dr. Peter Centre at St. Paul's Hospital, some community members believe they're not enough.
