A message from PARN Executive Director Kim Dolan:

"As I tie up loose ends I’m mindful that you may want an update on the Consumption and Treatment Site application. In mid-December we submitted a draft proposal based on the provincial CTS application criteria and look forward to comments from the Addictions & Substances Branch of the Ministry of Health. We continue to search for a site that meets the CTS criteria. The evidence-informed responses to this complex crisis are many – some are already in place and a few others are on the horizon."

"Misleading messages are now pervasive online, and it is important for the public to understand the difference between a demonstrated, scientifically backed piece of health information and claims that are simply made up."
