FRASER Health and Surrey RCMP on Saturday issued a warning to people who use drugs following a dramatic increase in the number of overdoses in the last 24 hours.
“It is especially disturbing when we see such a large number of overdoses in a short period of time, and even more concerning when it requires significant amounts of naloxone to reverse them,” said Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Victoria Lee. “Our message to people who use drugs is that there appears to be more lethal drug supply that is circulating.”
While none of the patients have died thus far, two have been admitted to hospital and all have required significantly more naloxone to treat them. Patients have been tested to determine the type of substance(s) responsible for overdoses.

The honest truth is there is still reluctance around immigration policy... When we want to talk about immigration and we say we want to bring more immigrants in because it's good for the economy, we still get pushback.
