Well usually no one needs to have their hand held while the basics are explained to them. I understand you're inability to do your own research so I will take the time to explain it to you here so you don't have to go through all the effort on your own.
First when you remove the user from shooting up in the street you also remove some of the stigma from the area and reduce the litter left from injecting drugs.
Next while a user begins to access Incite, they start to form bonds with workers there. These workers become trusted and their advice is taken when they are there at the right moment and a user decides to attempt to move into recovery. Facilities are available as well as help access other social services. Every meal a user gets is a meal they don't have to go steal. When there is a home to live in, money doesn't need to be stolen for rent.
As a user moves into rehabilitation the crime associated with their addiction ends and they work toward becoming stable.
618 people have been referred to withdrawal management.
Ah....we have rights.....we don't have a right to a safe place to violate the law.....Geez, that's ridiculous!
You don't understand the concept of harm reduction so what's the point of refuting this? Why do bars have parking lots Colpy?
I wasn't talking specifically about drugs, I know there are lots of drugs in prison......I was responding to this bit of inanity "
getting tough on crime doesn't promise any reduction in crime at all does it?" And no, I had not spared a thought to your position on gun control....to quote Anne McLellan "That debate is over"
So you were talking about what? Cheque fraud? Insider trading?
The gun control debate isn't over, we're just going to stop talking about it for a few years and when a real government of the people returns to Ottawa, we'll strike that discussion up again and work at reigning in the lawless gun culture.
Ahhh....that would be the government of Rob Ford............nothing to do with the Conservative Party of Canada or Harper....
You're losing it....
Yeah I didn't bring it up, I responded to it. Just try and stay with the tour alright.

Nope. You shouldn't play with concepts you are unable to understand.
