This article describes the protective mechanisms that will be constructed around the Prince Edward (Bloor Street) Viaduct in Toronto in order to prevent suicide in this area. This suicide prevention initiative is compared to a similar renovation complete in Washington’s Ellington Bridge, which decreased suicide to 1 in the 5 years following its construction. (SC)
