With 914 dead in 2016 and another 116 dead in the first month of 2017, the opioid overdose crisis continues to ravage the lives of Metro Vancouverites and the health care institutions that support them.
Those staggering losses have a group of well-known Vancouver musicians looking to help out in the fight against this public health emergency.
Jeremy Allingham, along with supporting acts Skyote and Sophia Danai, are showing solidarity with drug users, health care workers, and families who have lost loved ones during the overdose crisis.
“We know we’re not going to solve the crisis by any means, but we’re focused on making a difference with the money we raise,” said Allingham.
“And hopefully we can increase awareness of the massive scope of the problem in the process.”
