A memorial mural was unveiled Monday in front of the Carnegie Community Centre, to enable families and friends of people who have passed away from an overdose to have a public way to show grief and honour their loved ones.

The mural has been designed by local artist Smokey D, and also features a blank space for anyone to write the names of their own loved ones.
