MCCAULEY COMMUNITY CONVERSATION – DRUG POISONING CRISIS
WHEN: Sun, Sept 26 @3pm to 4:30pm
WHERE: Giovanni Caboto Park
Drug poisonings have increased dramatically. AHS has identified McCauley as the neighbourhood most affected. Partners in Drug Poisoning Prevention (PDPP) plans to launch a neighbourhood awareness campaign about the crisis, starting in McCauley. Before this takes place, Safer McCauley and McCauley Community League invite all community members to an informal meeting to discuss what we are experiencing in our neighbourhood. This is McCauley’s chance to determine what we’d like to get out of PDPP’s campaign and let them know what we’d like to learn about the drug poisoning crisis.
