CN AB: Column: Consumption Site Is A Logical Step In Drug Fight

MAP Drugnews - Top Stories - Thu, 03/01/2018 - 01:00
Lethbridge Herald, 26 Feb 2018 - SITE OPENS THIS WEEK, AMID LINGERING QUESTIONS FROM GENERAL PUBLIC This week marks a historic first for the City of Lethbridge. The Supervised Consumption Site (SCS) will open its doors and will be the first of its kind in North America to offer all four modes of consumption - ingestion/oral, injection, intra-nasal/snorting and inhalation. Despite this milestone, it's fair to say the facility has been met with mixed reviews, including people who have come to me to "blame" the police service for letting it happen. This not only demonstrates a narrow view of Canada and our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, but a failure to understand the role of the police in social-political decisions that are driven by municipal , provincial and federal officials and the mandate they support.
