Barrie's Proposed Public Space Bylaw sent to the UN Rapporteurs on Homelessness & Extreme Poverty

Today, the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition sent the City of Barrie's proposed public space bylaw to the UN Rapporteurs on Homelessness & Extreme Poverty for review. They declared it an egregious example of public space legislation that endangers people in poverty and at risk of drug poisoning.


Their report was submitted with endorsements from our colleagues at the Barrie Housing & Hmelessness Justice Network and the Gilbert Centre, as well as Pivot Legal Society and the Indigenous Harm Reduction Network / Wewena Training and Consulting.
