The Observers Direct

Cheap and deadly: Inside Canada's opioid crisis

The Observers is a collaborative project that includes both a website and a weekly TV show, all based on amateur content.


Our latest episode of Observers Direct takes a close look at fentanyl, the superdrug that is killing thousands of people every year in the US and Canada. We went to British Columbia with our Observers Jeremy and Keera to hear about it firsthand.
