SafeGames 2010 (www.safegames2010.com), a consortium of organisations led by Keeping the Door Open Society (www.keepingthedooropen.com), working to ensure that Vancouver residents and international visitors celebrate safely during the Winter Olympics, is hosting a public dialogue on Vancouver's innovative response to the complex issue of drug use this Friday, February 19th, from 7 - 9 pm at the Japanese Language Hall at 487 Alexander Street, Vancouver BC.

US based SafeGames' founder Luciano Colonna said, "In light of the SafeGames mission, we have organised a panel of experts who will discuss the Canadian Government's recent announcement that it will continue its efforts to close down Insite (www.communityinsite.ca) North America's only legal safe injection site. Closing down Insite would only add to the problems of a community impacted by high rates of HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis and fatal overdose."

Gillian Maxwell of 'Keeping the Door Open Society' commented: "Insite is a safe, health-focused facility where people can go to inject drugs and connect to health care services - from primary care to treat disease and infection, to addiction counselling and treatment."

Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director of the Drug Policy Alliance added "Insite is now the gold standard of public health responses to the issue of drug use. As one of Canada's most important public health innovations, it is important to share its mission, vision, and values with the world."


Which of these cities has a legal supervised omjection site? New York City, Vancouver,  Moscow. If you picked Vancouver, you are correct.
