Province announces Overdose Awareness Day at rally at Legislature

Winnipeg Sun, August 31, 2017

Moms Stop The Harm hosted their second annual gathering to honour loved ones lost to addiction and overdose on Thursday at the Manitoba Legislature.

The Manitoba government announced at the event that August 31 would be International Overdose Awareness Day. The news for grieving parents like Carol Ward, who lost her daughter Lisa Erickson to overdose in April, is seen as a step in the right direction. But Ward believes more needs to be done.
