The Crimes Of "Helpers"

The needle exchange in Victoria will not be allowed to move into a St. John's Ambulance building on Pandora Street. Parent at a nearby elementary school quite rightly screamed bloody murder and the ignorant, unthinking civic authorities had to back down

That's the good news.

Now, the bad.

Undaunted, the authorities will make the Victoria needle exchange mobile.

That's right.

Coming soon to a neighbourhood very, very close to you will be a travelling troop train and side show circus called the needle exchange.


Are you familiar with the Mobile Arthritis Unit? The Mobile Cancer Truck?

No, you are not. Because they do not exist.

But we will spend your tax dollars serving up needles to addicts.

And let's look at what that brings.

The very same report tells us "users have been loitering outside the Cormorant Street location in large groups, leaving dirty syringes, blood and human waste."

In case, you think human waste means envelopes or file, it means pee and poo.

Do you understand that the mayor of Victoria and AIDS Vancouver Island in their superior wisdom were preparing to bring this loveliness to a site near a junior school. And now that they have been deterred from so doing by righteous public outcry, they will instead bring it on wheels to ALL neighbourhoods?

This is what happens when you sit at home and watch The Biggest Loser instead of being involved.

If the media were to change the phrase from "Mobile Needle Exchange" to "Mobile Poison Distribution" then things would change dramatically in the eyes of most in the public.

Traveling needle dispensaries bringing the DTES to your neighbourhood. This is hell being brought to us in a hand basket for crying out loud.
Will they be setting up outside any politicians' houses?
I doubt it, Alice.

"Traveling needle dispensaries bringing the DTES to your neighbourhood."

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry at this line. It is spectacularly hilarious though. The caustic, biting wit of Burnaby David is getting better with time!

Very kind of you pelalusa, thanks. However you want to watch this sort of thing as it may just wind up on my blog as a review. :-)
