Injection site plan thrown into uncertainty by provincial election

Insite

A new wrinkle as emerged as Waterloo Region officials attempt to bring supervised injection sites to the Kitchener and Cambridge cores. Incoming premier Doug Ford said this spring that he is “dead against” the sites, which are touted as a way to reduce the impact of drug addictions on wider communities while improving health outcomes for users. As plans to create such sites locally have been moving forward under the assumption provincial funding would be available, the election of a Ford-led Progressive Conservative government throws into question whether existing fundingRead More

Gymnastics exec says she was told to keep quiet about Nassar

Hospital officials still looking for funding for a second cath table

Hospital officials still looking for funding for a second cath table

Officials at Windsor Regional Hospital are still looking for funding for a second table at the catheterization lab. President and CEO David Musyj says tells CTV News the funding was promised four years ago. “To say we are in 2018 and we haven’t moved ahead is a big disappointment,” says Musyj. The first cath table was installed at WRH in 2005, and was replaced in March. WRH says the lab, inside the Ouellette campus performs around three thousand operations every year. Musyj says that number could double if the provincialRead More


Ontario NDP leader wouldn’t introduce corner store sale of beer and wine

Andrea Horwath

The current system of restricted retail beer and wine sales in Ontario works well and is socially responsible, New Democrat Leader Andrea Horwath said Saturday. Campaigning in Thunder Bay, Ont., Horwath said there’s no need to allow convenience stores to carry the products — a perennially favoured if never-implemented idea that once helped propel the Liberals to office in the mid-1980s. “I’m going to be straight up about it: I don’t think we need to have beer and wine in the corner stores,” Horwath said. “I don’t think this isRead More


New vape packaging rules ‘grey’: Saskatoon vape shop manager

Brennden MacKenzie

A Saskatoon vape shop manager wants more clarity when it comes to new rules for vape product packaging. The federal government recently passed legislation that will restrict how vaping products are sold, labelled, manufactured and promoted. The new bill will ban companies from promoting “confectionery” vape-juice flavours — which include flavours pertaining to desserts and soft drinks that are believed to appeal to youth. “The wording is grey. It’s basically saying candy flavours, but would that mean orange juice, apple juice? Or would it mean pop drinks, like Coca-Cola?” BrenndenRead More
