No idea what you're talking about. I'll bet my bollocks to a barn dance that there are easily as many addicts in Rosedale and Forest Hill as there are downtown east. Private school coke heads and tweakers aplenty, believe you me. Addiction doesn't have a specific address, but thanks for perpetuating an ignorant misunderstanding of a serious condition.And here we are again. Government hacks forcing their harm reduction strategies onto neighbourhoods, without any real consultation with the local residents.
Why not deal with the issue of why there are so many drug addicts downtown, i.e. the shelter/homeless industry's utter concentration downtown east, instead of servicing them. Move the shelter beds into smaller groups across the city, and have a small harm reduction service in each one, not just for safe injections, but whatever self-harming predilections people have.
A good first step in addressing the causes of addiction would be to stop stigmatising and generalising and to actually learn a little about what the many faces of addiction look like.
