Cole Promane

The number of overdose deaths in the Northwest has climbed to eight, now making it the third highest rate of overdose fatalities in the province.

As a result, Dave Gordon, President of The Terrace Downtown Improvement Area Society, said that the amount of community and social media attention surrounding the issue has significantly increased.

Gordon adds that a safe injection site in downtown terrace would greatly decrease the amount of overdoses’ and disposed needles left on the street.

Currently there is still no plan in place to begin a safe injection site in Terrace.
