Health minister says Canadians need to avoid judging those addicted to opioids

One of the first things Petitpas Taylor did after being sworn in was to visit a supervised drug injection site in B.C.

The day the Public Health Agency of Canada released its latest fatality statistics, the minister stopped by the Shepherds of Good Hope in Ottawa, a homeless shelter with a program designed to help people with addictions. The person who runs the shelter, Deirdre Freitheit, told the minister what the facility needs most is for the federal government to approve their application for a supervised drug injection site — it’s currently being reviewed by Health Canada.
