OPEN LETTER: Calling on the Alberta Government to retract supervised consumption site report

Poor methodological quality, lack of transparency, and biased presentation of results


We, the undersigned scientists and scholars, produce methodologically-sound research and knowledge. We declare, clearly and unequivocally, that the findings contained in Albert’s SCS report were produced using unsound research methods and deficient analytic procedures.

Alberta’s SCS review does not satisfy the minimal standards for a credible evaluation or a quality study. The report lacks validity and reliability and, therefore, should not be used to inform public policy.
