Officials ignore unsanctioned hard drug injection site operating in Toronto park

David MenziesMission Specialist

Welcome to sanctuary city Toronto. If you park illegally, your car will be towed, but set up an unofficial, unauthorized hard drug injection site in a park where kids play, and that’s no problem.


Watch as I speak with residents and the operator to get both sides of the story.

Nothing to see here, folks...

Kameron Cuk and Liza Rosie…. When speaking of “lists”… The “mother” of all such enabler sites was of course the infamous East Hastings and Main in Vancouver… This of course eventually spilled over into Victoria on Vancouver Island with the blessings of twit local governments… Now add to you list Nanaimo on central V.I., Victoria, and bordering Saanich… And as of last year, there are advocate groups testing the waters with communities large and small across Vancouver Island…. Then of course, “place your bets” as to what is going to happen come October 17th – since all these “enablers” have studiously avoided mentioning the experience of the Colorado Highway Patrol once weed was legalized in that state…

Making sure they don’t O.D. when they shoot up or however they do their drug, and sending them on their way tells them what? Helps them how? Could these big hearted volunteers think just a bit further into the future? All they are doing is enabling and prolonging a persons addiction. It facilitates NO change.

There are way more of these opioids on the streets than there were even 10 years ago. I don’t think there was Fentanyl or carfentanyl at all until fairly recently, not in Canada. Heck there wasn’t even OxyContin on the streets until, maybe the mid 90’s(?) Sure in the 60’s 70’s and 80’s there was speed and heroin, but not this new breed of drug, and not the quantity on the streets.

Please do not get me wrong, i have no problem with helping people get clean if they truly want to. But there are already programs and avenues for help out there.

Enabling only makes things worse. The sites in BC have made the areas worse and increased OD deaths.

Kameron Cuk well said, they chose their addiction. My Fiance was pondering why the hell Narcan and other things are paid for by taxes for addicts who made the choice to be that way , meanwhile Epi Pens have to be paid for out of pocket by people who;s lives are at risk through no fault of their own? And i have known addicts and lost friends to hard drugs. One was someone i considered one of my very best friends, watching him destroy himself was terrible.

Liza Rozie, you forgot Kelowna BC in your list. Last time I was there, crack heads and whores everywhere.
The drug problem is a very complicated issue if you ask me. Even with secure borders drugs will get in, and Im not suggesting that we don’t defend our borders or stop attempting to kill the supply chain, Im all for it. Children raised with on existent parents is an issue, shitty schools are an issue, enablers are an issue, and creating a weak society is an issue. I do however have to say that these drug injection sites are nothing but enablers and keep addicts addicted, and should be shut down and charged to the fullest extent of the law. We have allowed for “progressive” ideas to become the norm (i.e., safe injection sites) when there are stats to prove otherwise that get ignored because there would be a whole list of do-gooders that would be out of a job and poor, its a viscous cycle perpetuated by people that couldn’t actually give a shit what happens.
Either way, addicts made the choice to do what they do, then you take the consequence that comes with it. I hate when people try to tell me that these people have an illness, NO THEY DONT, addiction isn’t an illness, its a damn choice and their choice is destroying neighbourhoods people worked hard to build, sets a shitty example for the younger generation, and puts average people at risk by being exposed to dirty needles.
Don’t get me started in Noloxone kits that are handed out for free

Big pharma and organised crime have created this mess. Guess what job turdos special people including illegal border crosser Canadian tax payers put in hotels do for a living? They dont have to work they get 50k a year ++++. How about the pharmacist
who arranged to have his store robbed to cover up his drug dealing.

I’m sure they all vote liberal. You’d have to be stoned out of your mind to vote for Trudeau and his wrecking crew.

It seems to me that these folks are aiding and abetting criminal (illegal drug taking) criminal activities and as such should be charged.

Mother Nature has a very effective method of culling the weak and undesirables – whether that’s humans or lower orders animals – so why are all the do-gooder lefties getting in her way?
Some people are too afraid to take their own lives so they choose the longer, harder and more painful way of self-destruction through alcohol and drugs and other self-destructive behaviours.
This may be tragic to some…but to others, it makes perfect sense and it is natural.
Why don’t all those lefty do-gooders turn their energy to something more productive and meaningful?

…and there but for the grace of God go I.

Is it too much to ask why this problem exists in the first place? How about close the damn borders so the supply is cut. How about stop flooding the country with illegals and people who will never be able to find jobs in our economy, so they become homeless. These problems are just stupid. We are not protecting our borders and that is why this crap exists in the first place. Easy access to fentanyl, cheap heroin, and other opioids and more aimless people to abuse them are the result, and it puts all Canadians at risk.
In the past five years this problem has multiplied ten fold. There has to be a reason.
I am sick of band-aides. Stop the source of the problem!
