Heroin injection sites coming to a neighbourhood near you -- as predicted

Brian LilleyArchive

Do you remember when everybody scoffed at the Conservatives during the last election for saying if we voted for the Liberals, we’d have heroin injection sites in our neighbourhoods?

The media and all the fancy people had a good laugh about that and the guy who’s now the Defense Minister commented that he couldn’t believe the Conservatives would “stoop so low” by suggesting such a thing.

Months after electing the Liberals, we’re now hearing that safe injections sites will be coming to what are essentially residential neighbourhoods in Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto.

I don’t think most people are going to like it.

While many feel compassion for those struggling with addiction and would like to see them helped, all we’re doing with safe injection sites is aiding and abetting those who would actually benefit from treatment to help them stop using drugs.

And I’d really like it if we could stop calling them “safe” injection sites.

There’s nothing safe about injecting heroin and now, as predicted, heroin injection sites are coming to a neighbourhood near you.

I have lost 3 friends to hard drugs, people like Ron think addicts are sensible and will gladly walk across town to the sites LMAO!, Sorry but they will only go there if it is close by, they will not wait to shoot up because some progressive wants them to.

Anonymous the SJW’s do not give a damn about sick people that need help, they need their egos to be stoked by having someone else bear a burden so they can fell like they care.

Bill Elder Ron would crap himself if he had one next door, that is for others to worry about, not him.

Ron maybe pay attention to Vancouver , OD’s and deaths have increased, usage has increased, and the streets are not clean. Try some reality.

Well I guess we have to keep the addicts happy, so that the liberals can wheel them out when they need their votes.

Why is the the so called health and well being of drug addicts more important than health and well being of everyone else, which seems to be the message? Reason, we have no problem, in this case, spending $4 million for harm reduction/needle exchange programs that may be doing more harm than good, instead of spending it on keeping MRIs or e.g. Cancer prevention programs open that have shown to be doing good?

That is something I would like asked of such program advocates, who have continued to press for these programs despite oppositions, much like a brat child who continues to press his/her parents for something despite continually being told “no” because he/she thinks they are so special and have to have their own way.

So Ron, I take it you’re putting your neighborhood out front as wanting one of these , hopefully right beside your house, so you can reap the benefits of addiction tourism.

Restrict them to these 3 cities and all the junkies pulling B&Es in other towns will swarm to these proggy metro toilets- great for the rest of us, put all the junkies in 3 liberal bastions and we reap the benefits while they watch crime escalate – like cleansing red state Canada of 90% of our petty crime problems and putting it where it truly belongs.

If these sites were for withdrawal from heroin that would be different. This is just keeping addicts addicted, and I don’t think we the public should forced to be the drug pimps for these people.

These safe injection sites are not only needed but prudent. Only “high and mighty” social contards will refuse to accept that addictions are diseases. I couldn’t care less what you have to say either. This is a wonderful alternative to having your children step on syringes in the back alley. Grow up you silly dinosaurs.

Maybe these heroin safe injection sites are just infra-structure projects of Junior which will then be turned into euthanasia safe injection sites when he passes his legalized murder bill???
