A friend, who is a keen observer of the passing parade, emailed this gem the other night.

I talked to a Vancouver cop the other day. I asked whether they ever had to attend at the junkie condo complex at 16th and Dunbar. The cop replied " Every day".

The cop went on to explain that almost all of the calls were about resident addicts going "batshit" because they have mental health issues.

Remember that Larry Campbell and Sam Sullivan, neither of whom have any credentials as clinicians, assured us that people with dual diagnosis ( i.e addiction plus a mental illness) would be cured by giving them a nice place to live.

I can think of a few addicts who had a nice place to live. Janice Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain etc.etc.

Why does the DSM ( dumb shit media) in this town never, ever follow this up?

The mainstream media (MSM or DSM) are Vision(less) cuckolds; Vision(less)are cuckolds to the academic elites who believe that providing accommodation and financial support. It seems just about everyone has bought into Insite and other wastes of time and money espoused by the academic elites and for better or worse, they will stick to the party (elite) line because they have for far too long blundered along with the present drug addiction policies.

The result is rampant drug addiction; the DTES rotting away in a macabre drug induced coma; and gangsters offing each other at a more than alarming rate.

It seems our dear politicos lack the moral fibre to call a "spade a spade" and start dealing with the sordid mess.

All this from a city that is supposed to be the greenest and best place in the world - give me a break as Vancouver and its tawdry narcissistic inhabitants deserve the squalor they have helped create.

Show me a politician who will stand up against the pandering of the drug supporting elites?

No, well I thought so.

The Insite and Vandu crowd have taken control of the city in more ways than one.

Not only do they get to do whatever they want - they have the MSM publicly doing their bidding and city officials blindly following suit.

We all told them the same thing when they closed Riverview and told us that these people would be better looked after in the community.
