What is taking place at the Novotel is unspeakable. Gord Tanner GM SSHA City of Toronto & Patricia Mueller CEO Homes First- resign. This was supposed to be a 'Pathway Inside' instead violence & trauma is inflicted upon the victims of John Tory failed housing policies.

Hey I’ve got ideas!
1) house all the people in encampments & raise income assistance rates so people aren’t desperately poor
2) stop the healthcare system collapse 3) fund an actual emergency response to the toxic drug crisis & actually expand multiple models of safe supply.

Importantly, we also want to acknowledge the continuing and devastating impacts of the overdose crisis on the community members who participated in this study, including honouring the contributions of community members who have died from overdoses since we began this project.

This study was possible due to the contributions of many people, including the significant contributions of people who use drugs who participated in our surveys, as well as the members of our Community Advisory Board who informed design of our survey and interpretation of results

These include 24/7 harm reduction services, options for safer splitting and sharing of drugs, the provision of a safer opioid supply or heroin-assisted treatment as an alternative to the toxic unregulated drug supply, and low-barrier HIV/HCV testing and treatment models.

BUT, with fentanyl as the predominant opioid in the illicit drug supply, evidence from this study also suggests that interventions right now must go further…

Our findings support calls to urgently address the high risk of dual harms from potential HIV/HCV transmission and the ongoing overdose crisis, including urgent action to expand distribution of injection supplies, naloxone, and supervised consumption services.

AWESOME: Ontario’s 5 largest healthcare unions have joined forces to warn the public that the Ontario government is intentionally manufacturing our current massive healthcare crisis…to justify privatization.

Who else agrees with them? ✋🏾

The BC Human Rights tribunal has ordered VACFSS to pay “Justine,” an Afro-Indigenous mom, $150k for discriminating against her — the second-highest award in the tribunal’s history indiginews.com/features/indig…

In Sept., Indigenous Services Canada sent a memo to northern Ont First Nations clinics, asking them to save EXPIRED children’s pain meds in case they have to be used in a shortage. Globe staff could not find this type of directive anywhere else in Canada. theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl…

Today the Supreme Court is hearing so they can decide if the Indian Child Welfare Act is unconstitutionally racist against white people
