Ottawa Public Health is urging party-goers to beware of fentanyl this New Year’s weekend.

The deadly drug is one hundred times more powerful than heroin, and has been found in other street drugs in Ottawa, including cocaine.

As I learned while reporting this story for CBC Ottawa, that warning is being echoed by others in the city.
