Question of the Week | Aug. 30

Do you think safe-injection sites would reduce the amount of discarded needles on the street?

BACKGROUND: The Safe Needle Disposal Task Force, a committee focused on developing a strategy to combat growing reports of drug paraphernalia discarded on Terrace streets, is moving forward in conversations about safe needle disposal.


With no existing protocol established by the city for dealing with drug paraphernalia, the task force was created to put a plan in place before the problem escalates. The committee has met twice so far on Aug. 1 and Aug. 15, and is comprised of Terrace RCMP, Northern Health, the City of Terrace, Terrace Downtown Improvement Association, and Ksan Society.
