Vancouver looks to pioneer 'safe supply' for hard drug users

DAN FUMANO Vancouver Sun, December 20, 2018

#MSTH Deb Bailey urged council to move forward with the task force recommendations, and said she would give them “two really good reasons that you should.”

The first reason was Bailey’s own daughter, Ola, who told her parents Dec. 22, 2015, that she was going Christmas shopping at Pacific Centre. But two days later, police officers arrived at Bailey’s door, she said, “And that’s how my husband and I ended up in the morgue on Christmas Eve.”

“I really hate the fact that Ola died alone and far from the family that loved her to bits,” Bailey said. “She was my best buddy. And I miss her.”
