Drug injection sites urged for Ottawa, Toronto

3 sites suggested for Toronto, 2 for Ottawa due to dispersed drug use

A four-year study suggests both Ottawa and Toronto need supervised drug injection sites because it would reduce both harm to drug users and the public.

The feasibility study, by researchers at the University of Toronto and staff at St. Michael's Hospital, was requested by the City of Toronto in 2008 and later expanded to include Ottawa.
