LIVE CHAT: Norm Buckley to address opioid addiction at noon on CBC Hamilton

Dr. Norm Buckley, professor and chair of McMaster’s Department of Anesthesia, will join CBC Hamilton reporter Adam Carter for a live chat at noon.

Buckley will address the rise in prescription painkiller abuse in the Hamilton area, and what exactly can be done to help stem the tide. He’s a key member of a new local task force working to find ways to combat the growing problem, and overhaul the way prescription opioids are handled and tracked through Hamilton.

Tune in at 12 p.m. to view the discussion.

Questions for Buckley can be sent to or via @CBCHamilton on Twitter.
