Vancouver health officials have hopes for new, supervised-injection site - BCGEU

With more than 200 people dead from drug overdoses in Vancouver already this year, health officials hope the city's third federally approved injection site will provide relief from a devestating public health emergency.

On Friday, Powell Street Getaway begins operating its new, supervised-injection site seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., after receiving an exemption from Health Canada in May.
