Harm: Alberta’s Preventable Overdose Crisis – How We Got Here and How We Get Out, is happening TODAY at 2 p.m.

A panel discussion showcasing a Calgary-produced documentary will examine Alberta’s response to the opioid crisis, which has claimed the lives of more than 4,000 Albertans since 2016, and question why more isn’t being done to stop the harm and save lives.


The forum will also be broadcast live on our Facebook page.
