DTES Market Petition for Harm Reduction Access

This petition is on the Unceded Coast Salish Territories xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh).


Recently, DTES Street Market Manager, Tracey Axelsson has been trying to enforce new regulations that stigmatize and put drug users in danger:

  • NO using in the DTES Street Market

  • NO harm reduction gear available in the DTES Street Market

  • NO overdose response within the DTES Street Market

People will always use drugs within the market - forcing them into using in secrecy is DANGEROUS.

  • No access to clean gear puts them in danger of sharing "used" equipment.

  • Not having an Oxygen tank and trained overdose response within the market could be the meaning between life and death.
