Safe Injection Sites Planned for Montreal

Montreal should open supervised injection sites to reduce overdoses and the spread of blood-borne diseases among injection drug users, Director of Public Health Dr. Richard Lessard said in a report released Friday. If the suggestions are accepted by the Quebec Health Department, Montreal could launch three supervised injection sites and a mobile injection center as early as next year. However, his recommendation is that most of the sites be housed in local community centers, rather than medical facilities. This is at odds with the approach taken by city government, which has stated a preference that the injection centers be located in hospitals or free community health clinics.
