Subject: Supreme Court of the United States — The City of Grande Prairie et al v. Apotex Inc. et al.
To all concerned Municipal leaders:
We write to inform you of a significant step we have taken on behalf of all Canadian Municipalities.
On September 20, 2023, we with our U.S. counsel, filed a brief with the Supreme Court of the United States. This action underlines our collective intent to hold pharmaceutical companies, distributors, and the Sackler family accountable for the opioid epidemic that has caused immeasurable pain and harm to our communities.
Understanding the importance of this endeavour for every municipality across Canada, we believe it’s imperative for all municipal leaders to be informed and, if so inclined, to extend their support.

Together, with informed action and unwavering resolve, we can address the impacts of the opioid crisis and seek justice for the people we represent. We thank you for your leadership and commitment to the well-being of your communities.
