Downtown city councillors and overdose-prevention advocates are calling on the provincial government to reverse its decision to cut the funding of two Toronto overdose-prevention sites and review the operating status of a third.

"Overdoses are the leading cause of death for young people in our province and supervised consumption sites are a proven life-saving healthcare model," Ward 10 Coun. Joe Cressy told Global News on Saturday.

Cressy oversees much of the downtown core on council and is the chair of the city's Board of Health.
