Megaphone #98 concludes our three part series on addiction and harm reduction in Vancouver. This time, we take a look at what’s being done to apply harm reduction to alcohol addiction and we bring illicit or non-beverage alcoholism into the conversation.
Also in this issue: have you been to Woodward’s and noticed the photo depiction of the 1971 Gastown Riot? Megaphone explains where that image is from and how the event it depicts has been so instrumental in shaping the Downtown Eastside.
Plus: David Suzuki thinks all you radicals are actually pretty rational; we look at the detrimental effects of porn; we discuss homelessness in the suburbs; and we have great poems and stories from our vendors and creative writing workshop participants.
