The fight against fentanyl continues on city streets


"Everything seems normal, or as normal as daily life can be in the life of a seasoned drug addict. They make their pick-up as normal, they process the drug as normal, they fill the syringe as normal, or lay out the line as normal and then shoot it into the vein; yes you guessed it, just as normal. Everything seems normal until it isn’t."

A year after my story on the fentanyl crisis in Oshawa was awarded by the Ontario Community Newspapers Association, I decided to follow-up and see how things had progressed. 

I learned that things in Oshawa weren't improving, in fact, they were getting worse.
