squashed plans to open an overdose-prevention site

 Staff at Parkdale Queen West Community Health Centre is looking at options after the province squashed their plans to open an overdose-prevention site on Monday.
The Health Minister announced Monday she wants to conduct a review to determine the site’s merits, but for people in the community struggling with drug use, the decision is unconscionable.
Health Centre officials spent Tuesday in meetings trying to figure out exactly how to address the situation.
While they are pushing the government to reverse this decision, there are other options on the table – one of those being to open this site regardless of what the province has decided.
