“L’allée du crack” in the news

Both Radio-Canada and La Presse are reporting on “l’allée du crack”, a one‑block street running from Ste‑Catherine down to Charlotte Street, mostly bordered by social housing, and plagued by noise and disturbance because it’s around the corner from the Cactus safe injection site. Residents want action.

Recently a new building meant to offer living space to the homeless, as well as another safe injection site, was announced for the area near Atwater Market. This story about Cactus may arm the people opposing that project with a stronger argument.
