BC needs an all-party committee to address the toxic drug crisis

2,224 people died from toxic drugs in BC in 2021 – a 26-per-cent rise over the previous year. That's more deaths per year than the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This public health emergency is going into its sixth year. 2021 is the second year in a row of record-setting deaths.

We can’t afford to move slowly.

Sign the petition to call for an all-party committee to create immediate, stabilizing solutions to the toxic drug crisis.
