Health Canada approves 4 drug consumption sites

Health Canada has approved plans to create four new supervised consumption sites in British Columbia and Quebec. The sites allow people to use illicit drugs under the supervision of a medical professional in case they overdose. Two of the new sites are in Surrey, B.C., one is in Vancouver and a mobile consumption site has been approved to operate in Montreal. There has been an increasing call for more access to legalized heroin treatment in Canada.
