Legal Challenge to London’s Methadone Clinic Ban

In November London’s City Council approved a one-year ban on new methadone clinics, citing concerns that drug dealers were preying on users of the already existing downtown clinic. This ban is now being challenged by Ontario Addiction Treatment Centres, who have hired London lawyer Alan Patton to fight their case. In his notice filed with city hall, Patton argued there was no urgent need for a moratorium on new methadone clinics.
