This Nest Of Dirty Needles Has Become A Symbol Of Vancouver's Opioid Crisis

    The "sad reality" in Vancouver's downtown eastside.

    As Vancouver grapples with the opioid crisis, a local police officer tweeted this poignant image: a clutch of pigeon eggs carefully laid in a nest of dirty needles.

    The downtown eastside has become ground zero for Vancouver's battle with fentanyl overdoses.

    There have been 126 overdose deaths in the city this year, according to the Vancouver Sun.

    The image now has hundreds of retweets, but for people like Davey, it's just another day on the frontlines.
