Downtown Eastside drug users give Canada's new health minister a to-do list for the fentanyl crisis (Crosstown Clinic)
Canada’s new health minister made a quiet visit to the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU) headquarters last Saturday (October 21).
Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Liberal MP for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe, made the stop in the Downtown Eastside while out west for a meeting with provincial counterparts in Edmonton held the day before.
(While in the Downtown Eastside, Taylor also visited Crosstown Clinic, home of the only prescription-heroin program in North America.)
