Life-saving site needed
In six years of policing, I’ve investigated numerous complaints of injection drug use near schools. I’ve responded to drug overdoses in church parking lots. And I’ve spoken with many small business owners who were frustrated with needles left on their properties. These experiences form the basis of my personal opinion that a supervised injection site is needed in the CRD. It is vital for the province and its partners to make this a reality as quickly as possible. The entire region could benefit from this kind of life-saving health service.
