The Cowichan Valley School District is launching an investigation after being made aware on May 21 that a safer snorting kit was left behind at one of it’s schools by a third-party presenter, whose name was not disclosed. The presenter was there to speak with students about harm reduction and substance addiction.

“We were recently made aware of materials that were left at one of our schools from a third-party harm reduction and drug addiction presentation that we do not consider school or age appropriate,” said district spokesperson Mike Russell. “While the Cowichan Valley School District does support harm reduction as a well-researched and effective method of addressing the ongoing opioid crisis and conversations around drugs and drug addiction, we aim to ensure that the teachings related to it are appropriate for our students.
