Ladysmith Interagency Committee presents “A Just Society” The Story of Our Opioid Crisis and Substance Abuse

May 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

There is a crisis in our communities of overdoses and deaths due to poisoning of the drug supply, and exacerbated by homelessness, poverty, and stigma.

The Ladysmith Interagency Committee presents “A Just Society” The Story of Our Opioid Crisis and Substance Abuse by Film Producer Nick Versteeg.  The film captures the local picture of the opioid crisis in the Cowichan Valley Region.  The film will be followed by a presentation by Ladysmith’s Medical Health Officer, Dr. Shannon Waters, where specific statistics for Ladysmith will be shared. The event takes place at Ladysmith Senior Secondary in the Multi-Purpose Room, 710 6th Avenue, Ladysmith from 5PM to 7PM.
