Coun. Shad Qadri listened to the evidence from professionals and 
colleagues. He still could not support the safe injection site - 
partly because a cabbie would not take him closer than a couple of 
blocks from the Insite injection site in Vancouver. I wonder how 
representative that cabbie was.

The evidence is in and has been for some years: safe injection sites 
save lives and reduce crime. The mayor, the police chief and the 
councillor need to accept the evidence whether they like it or not. 
They can make Ottawa a safer place for us all, addicts and non-addicts alike.
