Kanada. Edmonton: Red Deer supervised drug consumption site facing backlash, online harassment

The centre saw 4,500 site visits and 151 reversed overdoses last month

Staff at Turning Point Society of Alberta, the centre running Red Deer's downtown supervised consumption site, say they're being bullied and harassed online. 

Since the overdose prevention site opened last October, Sarah Fleck, the centre's clinical manager, said staff have seen a gradual increase of negative comments and public backlash targeted at clients on their Facebook page and via email. (CBC, Kanada, 12.08.2019)
