Kensington residents: Stronger commitment to neighborhood must accompany any safe-injection site

A few dozen people sat in the sterile, modern sanctuary of The Rock Ministries church near Kensington Avenue and Somerset Street, listening quietly as O’Connor rattled off figures on theft and armed robberies.

A few dozen people sat in the sterile, modern sanctuary of The Rock Ministries church near Kensington Avenue and Somerset Street, listening quietly as O'Connor rattled off figures on theft and armed robberies.
