I'll stop you there, Mayor. I have other questions. Thank you for that.
Dr. Juurlink, I want to talk about drug policy generally. You have previously called on the federal government to declare a national public health emergency to address the opioid crisis. We've all seen the numbers: 4,000 Canadians died last year. The numbers have been going up each of the last three or four years. Eleven people are dying a day.
Can you explain to the committee why you make that call?
