It’s with respect to the overdose crisis.
2018 saw 1,510 casualties in BC.
More than any other Canadian province.
In Nanaimo, 34 people died in 2018 as a result of illicit drug use.
Organizers say its time to end the stigma, have a conversation and utilize harm reduction strategies to decrease the numbers.
In Nanaimo activities will take place at Maffeo Sutton Park and on the Sunshine Coast people will gather at the Davis Bay Pier from 3 to 6.
