Re: Victims of overdose. To have a location so these people can go for a 
fix is totally wrong. What needs to be done is to drill them into giving 
up the people that supplied the drugs to start with. Giving them another 
fix is not a solution. Alcohol is also a nasty drug. Is the city setting 
up a location where alcoholics can go for a supervised drink? No, AA is 
not a place where they can get a supervised drink.

Then on top of all of this, our wonderful Liberal leader is legalizing 
another drug. It is time to bring our police forces up to par to stop 
this epidemic. If the government wants to help, then create police task 
forces to deal directly with these issues instead of promoting more use 
of killer drugs. Also, the judicial system needs to be tuned in as to 
sentences for such offences. Instead of giving them a controlled dose, 
have a police officer deal with them.
