Bell: Kenney slams NDP and the safe injection horror show

3 56 172

The great defenders of safe injection sites at any cost should read the tea leaves spread throughout this column.

They are so easy to read, even Alberta Health Services and Calgary city council shouldn’t have a problem.

United Conservative leader Jason Kenney says if his party forms government in the coming weeks, and he becomes premier, the UCP will review existing injection sites and their “social impact.”

He continues.

“We will not support or fund additional sites that do not have the support of the local community,” says Kenney.

“Politicians have no right to inflict on entire neighbourhoods massive social and crime problems against the consent of the local residents and businesses.”

Kenney says the federal government gives its seal of approval to these injection sites so the province can’t pull their licences.

But the provincial government could stop funding for a site and put the money towards detox and drug treatment.

Yes, it is up to Alberta Health Services to clean up its act and, as is often the case with them, this is bad news.

The ostriches at AHS appear to either not........
