Overdoses are now killing more people in BC than car accidents. 300 motor-vehicle deaths in 2015 versus 750 projected overdose deaths for 2016. BC pledged $30 million over 5 years to target driving injuries and fatalities.

Since declaring a public health emergency due to overdose deaths, the Province hasn’t committed any new funding for supervised consumption.
