I am ambivalent about the insite decision. I have spoken to Dr Gabor Mate about insite and he rightly points out that most of my opposition to insite is iedeological rather than completely evidence based. I have a lot of problems spending huge amounts of money to keep addicts in their misery. If my libertarian friends want to to do drugs , people should suffer the consequences of their actions. Instead the state facilitates the addiction. I must say I have looked at some of the studies on insite and have not been overly impressed. I dont want insites popping up all over Canada, but I also believe that if provinces want to do it we should leave it up tio them. The supremes are have spoken. I dont particularly like the charter of rights with no responsibilities, but it is the law of the land. trudeau s poison still remains.
