Drug Overdose Awareness Day

Thunder Bay's Drug Strategy hopes the public will use this week to think about those we lost to drug overdoses.

A special ceremony marking International Overdose Awareness Day was held this morning at City Hall. 

In 2013, Thunder Bay saw 37 drug related deaths. 

37 t-shirts were displayed at City Hall marking their deaths.
