The Patch 4 Patch bill is about to become law in Ontario.
The bill, pitched by Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli, got support from all parties at Queen’s Park yesterday. The bill has Fentanyl users return their old patches to the pharmacy before getting new ones, as an attempt to stop illegal use of the drug, which can be deadly.
Fedeli says this program is working, and it will save lives across the province. The program is already in many communities across Ontario, including North Bay.
