The purpose of this sixth Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) campaign is to get youth from 15 to 21 years to think about use, whether it is alcohol or drugs. There is also a campaign aimed at children from 10 to 14 years old.
Once again the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal joins the MSSS to help promote Drug Awareness Week, and their Community Outreach Officers will tour Montreal area high schools throughout November to discuss drugs and their effects with the students.
In addition, certain schools will also have a presentation of the play "Les vendredis de Sophie" (Sophie's Fridays), that deals with addiction issues for secondary 1 and 2 students.
Citizens are also invited to come and meet our Officers and discuss these issues at an information booth set-up at the Berri-UQAM subway station, on November 17th from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
They will be able to familiarize themselves with educational tools used by police officers, including the new table that summarizes drugs, produced by Santé Canada in collaboration with the RCMP, the SQ and the SVPM and to obtain pamphlets.
If you witness activities that lead you to believe that the sale of narcotics is happening in your neighbourhood, it is very important to mention it to your local Poste de quartier.
You can also contact Info-Crime at (514) 393-1133, anonymously and confidentially.
