Re: NDP lobbying for safe injection site.

What is it with all progressives pushing so called "safe injection
sites" which is an oxymoron, as such places are anything but safe.
Addicts may be getting clean needles, but they are still injecting
street drugs of unknown quality. These drugs addicts commit serious
crimes, placing the public at risk.

Surely rather than facilitating drug addicts to feed their addiction, 
weaning them off their addiction, through rehabilitation, is a much 
better option. Addicts put huge strains on our ailing health-care 
services and most end up having a shortened life span caused by drug 
damage to their vital organs. Safe injection sites do not eradicate 
those problems!
