Toronto Star, 19 Sep 2017 - News that Toronto is one big step closer to a long-term safe injection site is most welcome, particularly as this city, like many in North America, grapples with a growing opioid addiction crisis. It's also a reminder of the important work ahead. In the month since a pop-up injection site opened in Moss Park, the volunteer staff has accommodated nearly 2,700 visits and administered 26 doses of naloxone, the antidote to these deadly drugs.

The Trudeau government has a startling number of hot-button and critical issues on its plate, including NAFTA negotiations, marijuana legalization and major tax reform. Brace yourselves: Any one of these on their own could dominate the news cycle for months.

The Sun Times, 18 Sep 2017 - When I was in high school we had a smoking area. My kids found that hard to believe, given that smoking on school property usually meant a trip to the principal's office today. But it's true. We had a smoking area. And students smoked tobacco and a few other things in the smoking area. Teachers in nearby classrooms complained of second hand smoke.

Northumberland Today, 14 Sep 2017 - The government selling weed to anybody is a terrible idea. So is the creation of a subsidiary of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario to create and run a retail network.

The Delhi News-Record, 14 Sep 2017 - The Ontario Liberals, who couldn't organize a pee parade at a beer festival, are going into the retail marijuana business.

CN ON: Editorial: No Need To Hastily Strike The Match On Legal Pot

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Ottawa Sun, 17 Sep 2017 - Canada's and Ontario's top cops have told the federal Liberal government it is moving too quickly on legalizing recreational pot. A delay might be necessary. The government should listen carefully to what law enforcement officers are saying. Whether or not one thinks it's a good idea to make marijuana legal for recreational use, the fact that police are worried about the timelines is troubling. It's a problem for us all if pot is legalized without proper preparation to keep public order and uphold the rules.
