Progress Report Episode 7: "The Corpse Panel"

The overdose epidemic killed 2 people a day in Alberta last year. It's an emergency akin to a house on fire but instead of helping the people caught up in it Jason Kenney has frozen three planned safe consumption sites and brought in a new panel to review the "socio-economic impact" of these life-saving facilities. In this episode we bring in Petra Schulz of Moms Stop the Harm as a guest co-host to examine the causes of the overdose crisis and the history of civil disobedience and direct action in harm reduction in Canada with Garth Mullins as well as the latest news from the front lines in Lethbridge from Stacey Bourque with ARCHES
