Confusing, my limited understanding was, in general safe injection sites overall were beneficial. I think I read a report from BC that said overall there was a net benefit, now there isn't one here in Alberta? Is this cheery picking or another committee that was 'told' the outcome BEFORE the work was done?

No, it's been a disaster. In Calgary it turned a vibrant area into a disaster zone. Maybe the concept is sound when practiced in a different manner, like Portugal or Switzerland. But in Canada it looks like it's been a complete debacle.

Kenney pre-determining the outcome doesn't change the facts on the ground though. The area around the consumption site in Calgary is basically being destroyed as a livable place due to the activities of the junkies that flock to the clinic. And it also appears the staff at the clinic are also helping the junkies break the law, aren't following the clinic procedures, and are interfering with the police when the cops try to impose order. It's turned into some kind of free-for-all zone and that can't be allowed to happen.

I live a block from this shit-show, and it's a fucking nightmare. Needles strewn about... Meth zombies milling about... My building has been broken into 5 times. The cops don't do shit.

My sympathies. We're living not too far now from Forest Lawn and Dover in Calgary and some of the street folks in this general area are interesting to say the least. But I imagine their activities out here are no where near as entertaining/awful as what goes down all day long near the Chumir clinic. :|
