Go Back

Threats emerge amid needle crisis

November 18, 2019

The Lethbridge Needle Crisis Support Group announced their decision to pull back from picking up discarded needles after receiving numerous threats to their safety.

There is a Facebook group in Lethbridge which calls itself the Lethbridge Needle Crisis Support Group. Many in the group have concerns with needle debris being found in our city so they have been collecting the discarded needles on their own and to take them to City Hall all at once in buckets. The group announced recently, however, their decision to pull back from picking up the discarded needles after they received numerous threats to their safety.
