The committee reviewing the social and economic impacts of supervised consumption sites will host a public engagement session in Red Deer next month.
The event, which will be held at the Cambridge Hotel and Conference Centre Sept. 10 from 6 to 9 p.m., gives the committee an opportunity to hear from residents.
Earlier this week executive director of Turning Point, Stacey Carmichael, said she was “a bit disappointed” in the composition of the committee.
“It doesn’t have representation from a supervised consumption service or harm-reduction organization. That’s a bit concerning,” Carmichael said on Tuesday.
“I also question what other health issue is viewed through a business lens.”
Sessions are also planned for Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Grande Prairie, Edmonton and Calgary.
