CN ON: Column: Legalizing Illicit Drugs Won't Solve Opioid Crisis

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Sudbury Star, 18 Aug 2017 - The hare-brained idea from Toronto that the country should consider decriminalizing or legalizing illicit drugs because current policy has failed is not just "crazy," it is insane. It would be laughable if the issue weren't so deadly serious.



CN ON: Editorial: City Hall Creates Its Own Problems

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Toronto Sun, 16 Aug 2017 - After advocates for safe drug injection sites in Toronto set up an unlicensed, "pop up" one in a tent in Moss Park on Saturday, police announced they wouldn't close it down. Their argument was that while such a facility can attract the drug trade, the recent crisis in drug overdose deaths, as the city scrambles to set up legal safe injection sites, is of more pressing importance.

CN ON: Editorial: A Sensible Approach To Dealing With Drug Abuse

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Toronto Sun, 13 Aug 2017 - In the wake of a recent spike in drug deaths in Toronto, municipal politicians have suddenly gone into overdrive suggesting ways to combat this scourge. In the space of a week we went from Mayor John Tory leading a plan to speed up the completion of three previously approved supervised drug injection sites in Toronto, to Board of Health Chairman Joe Mihevc suggesting it's time to consider decriminalizing heroin and other drugs.



CN BC: Editorial: What's The Point Of Pot Arrests?

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMT

Prince George Citizen, 10 Aug 2017 - Part one of two RCMP are still making pot arrests, in Prince George, in 2017, less than a year before marijuana becomes legal in Canada. It'd be funny if it wasn't so silly.
