In Committee from the House of Commons - Public Safety and National Security - November 3, 2014


MPs continue their review of the federal government's bill regarding supervised injection sites. Bill C-2 would establish criteria that must be met in applications for proposed sites. The committee first hears from former Insite user Dean Wilson, who credits the staff at North America's first legal supervised injection site to helping him on the road to sobriety. He was also one of the plaintiff in the Supreme Court of Canada case that ruled the Vancouver site could remain open. David Berner from the Drug Prevention Network of Canada, Vancouver City Police Inspector Scott Thompson, Adrienne Smith from the Pivot Legal Society, Barry Lebow with the Society of Accredited Senior Agents, Society of Accredited Senior Agents, Donald MacPherson with the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition, and Canadian Police Association president Tom Stamatakis also offer their views on the bill.
