Corrections Canada gives inmates “free” needles to inject their “smuggled” drugs

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


Correctional Service Canada will be handing out free needles to intravenous drug users inside two Canadian prisons starting in June.

The needle exchange program will eventually expand to federal prisons all across the country.

Hard time in the big house used to mean three square meals and a cot, but now it means all of those things plus all the hypodermics you can stick in your arm.

Phase 1 of the program begins with the Atlantic Institution for men in Renous, New Brunswick, and a women's facility, the Grand Valley Institution in Kitchener, Ontario.

Done under the auspices of harm reduction, Correctional Service Canada says the lack of clean needles in jail is putting inmates at risk of blood borne illnesses like HIV and Hepatitis when they use their illegal smuggled drugs.

What's next? Giving the prisoners knives so they don’t have to turn their toothbrushes into shivs as part of a commitment to inmate dental health? Why not give them wine too, so they don’t have to percolate pruno in their toilets?

Watch as I examine where this crazy idea came from and where inmates are getting their contraband.

Instead of spending money to help inmates avoid the rehabilitation part of prison – the part the Left tells us is so important - wouldn’t it be more compassionate to ensure prisons are safe for everyone?

And that means getting dangerous drugs out of our prisons altogether.

my wife requires needles for her insulin… why do we have to pay for them when people who engage in ILLEGAL behaviour are given free ones????

Jim Reinhart well said and i tend to agree that they can off themselves if they wish, no skin off my ass.
Harley has a good point though, they can be used as weapons.

What about the used needles being used as a weapon? Some inmates are predators.
I would not want my children working there. One stick with an infected needle is all it takes to ruin someones life. I think the reason guards or others bring this shit into prison is, it is worth ten time,s its value on the outside of prison.
Liberal,s gave them the vote too. That is why prison ridings never vote conservative. They dont like the tough on crime approach. I think the bastards selling this death should get life for the millions it cost and the damage done to family’s.

The prison guards also make money managing the drug habits of inmates. But more importantly, this is to ensure the prison population votes for the liberals.

Let’s face it. Jail guards want a quiet and manageable prisoner. No one really cares about the health of the inmate if they first don’t care about it themselves. They led an unhealthy live style when they were ‘out’ so doing drugs inside is no big lifestyle change. The more drugs they take the sooner they do away with themselves and therefore the less burden they present to society. Rehabilitation presupposes two things. First that a prisoner was once ‘habilitated’ and second there must be a desire on the part of the prisoner to be rehabilitated.

An almost inevitable result once the first “safe injection sites” were set up and encouraged around Main and Hastings in Vancouver many years ago…

Do vets with Diabetes needing injections get free needles?? Or anyone else for that matter?

Gharab well then put one in your home.

Hyacinth funny how the left deems all their opinions as a right.
Tammie i wonder if Asswad gets another type of injection from a donkey?

“It is the right of any Canadian to have access to a safe injection site, even if that site isn’t prison.”

A right? Wow!! This is what Canada has finally degraded to, a bunch of lazy freeloaders demanding that the tax payer give them everything on a silver platter or be called lacking in compassion or worse.
commented 2018-05-15 22:24:34 -0400
Aswad, what gives Canadians the RIGHT to ANY sight specifically set aside to inject toxins into their veins, safe or otherwise? No one has the “right” to anything they haven’t earned. And if junkies have the “right” to something they haven’t earned, wouldn’t that mean someone else (namely the tax payers) have an “obligation” to supply it? I’m not saying we should be lacking in compassion, but a far more compassionate approach would be to invest in programs that would assist drug addicts in kicking their habit and becoming fully integrated back into society as contributing members. But even this level of compassion, while it may be desirable and ultimately in our own best interest, is it our obligation I don’t think so…. Sorry

Phase 1- who knows…
a ridiculous plan.

I don’t think the warden should hand out needles, dirty or clean!
commented 2018-05-15 21:27:59 -0400
Mr. Asswad, what safe injection site are you using?
commented 2018-05-15 21:01:20 -0400
gharab, what part of the Canadian Chater do you get that little gem from?

This is all about Trudeau protecting his investment in the Middle Eastern Poppy Trade.

What next! Free condoms to rapists?

If I ever needed a reason to not get involved in prison outreach ministry, this would be it. I hope my church an end to our prison outreach so as to not put our men at risk of being injected with a dirty needle.

Mr. Speaker, if the Prime Minister goes through with the ludicris notion of supplying convicts with needles with which to shoot up with God knows what and inject fellow inmates, guards, and visitors with God knows what, our prisons will EXPLODE!!. Will the Prime Minister concede that the enabaling prisoners to inject themselves with drugs in what is supposed to be a drug free zone is NOT NORMAL?
