A packed theatre watched Nick Versteeg’s documentary ‘A Just Society” on Thursday, March 28.
The documentary was riveting and held the audience’s attention for almost an hour.
A Just Society showed a passionate look at the challenges we, as a community face in our opioid crisis. Nick asked the question. “Why do we have this enormous problem in a rich country like Canada?”.
The film set the tone for the discussion that followed. A panel of prominent community members gave their views on the crisis.
The panel presented a broad perspective and the audience listened with respect; from the needs of the homeless to the concerns of business owners, to the despair of the addicted.
