The toxic drug supply killed a record 2,224 people in BC last year. Last week, activists and those affected organized in front of the Legislature calling for more action. Today, we hear about what they're calling for and speak with Fred Cameron, Operations Director at SOLID Outreach Society, to get his reaction to the current government plans.

Today's episode is sponsored by the Victoria Conservatory of Music and The Vista.
