This work is a response to the opioid poisoning epidemic in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. In April 2016 BC declared an overdose crisis. In the past seven years, over 20,000 mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, and friends have died in BC as a result of opioid poisoning. To find out more please visit the Canadian Association of People who Use Drugs. If you have lost loved ones, my deepest condolences.
