Drug addiction is a very serious problem in our communities.
Drugs like heroin tear families apart, promote criminal behaviour, and destroy lives.
That’s why our government has focused on stopping illegal drug use and treating addicts in a safe way.
But drug treatment programs should be focused on ending drug use – not giving illicit drugs to drug addicts.
That’s why I was shocked to learn today that Health Canada approved applications to give heroin to addicts – against the wishes of our elected government.
We’re going to take steps to make sure this never happens again – but we need your help.
If the NDP or Liberals are elected in 2015, you can bet they would make this heroin-for-addicts program permanent.
We can’t let that happen. We’ll keep fighting to keep our streets and communities safe, but we need your support.
Will you stand with us?
