Letter: Great coverage on fentanyl crisis

We would also like to thank Penticton Western News reporter Dale Boyd for his coverage of the overdose crisis, town hall meeting.

On behalf of Pathways Addictions Resource Centre we would like to thank everyone who turned out for the overdose crisis town hall meeting on Dec. 7.

Thanks to the panel for sharing their knowledge on the issue and to the audience for asking pertinent questions. It was a informative conversation that we will continue in the New Year.

We would also like to thank Penticton Western News reporter Dale Boyd for his coverage of the overdose crisis, town hall meeting. The article (Western News, Dec. 9, Discussion continues on fentanyl crisis) completely captured the essence of the town hall meeting. The article hit bang on to the issues discussed.  Kudos Dale on your articulate reporting.
