Note: Parenthetical remark by the Sun editor.


Your deputy editor Tyler Dawson's piece in Saturday's Sun is
incredibly naive. Residents and law-abiding citizens have every right
to complain about a pop-up harm reduction site in a city park and the
resulting unleashing of stoned drug addicts carrying illegal and
potentially lethal drugs wandering the park and the surrounding
streets while families and their children play.

A two year old could tell you injecting illegal drugs into your
bloodstream is bad. Observing the process in a city park in a tent to
make sure they do it properly, if that is even possible, is asinine.

The lack of police enforcement is even more disturbing. What's next?
Pop up sex addict harm reduction sites?

The do-gooders who promote this insane activity should be putting more
onus on the drug abuser, rather than on the unsuspecting
neighbourhoods to "suck it up" as normal activity.
