Toronto Star: There were more than 800 reversed overdoses in Toronto’s shelter system last year. A new database shows which shelters were hit the hardest.. “In the final months of 2020, a hotel shelter in Scarborough was being battered by suspected drug overdoses — Toronto paramedics attended the single shelter 23 times for non-fatal incidents of drug toxicity between October and December alone. Downtown, another hotel shelter was fighting the same battle. Seventeen times in those three months, first responders showed up at the Bond Place hotel run by Dixon Hall, for cases where the patient was successfully revived.”
