/ 97.3 The Eagle

A supervised safe injection site could be coming to Nanaimo. Medical Health Officer Dr. Paul Hasselback says the process of establishing a site is in the early stages. “The community needs to speak up that they would like to see it happen. I do think that we need to get the support provincially as well as in the health region that this is a priority that needs to happen,” Hasselback states. According to Island Health, Nanaimo’s hospital will see about 500 non-fatal drug overdoes this year.
