What's the next big brain wave... hooker coupons for rapists?
The distribution of safer crack use kits to addicts does not promote drug use, the head of the city's needle exchange program said yesterday.I dunno... let's ask somebody who has to deal with these folks on a daily basis...
Shaun Hopkins, manager of The Works, which is run by Toronto Public Health, said an estimated 12,000 kits, containing glass stems, brass screens and rubber mouthpieces, are distributed every month at a cost of about $1.50 each.
Crack cocaine remains the No.1 drug problem on Toronto streets and police say they're in favour of anything that cuts into the drug's use.**********
They just don't believe handing out crack user kits does that.
RELATED: Speaking of Fiberal nutbaggery...
I seem to remember that the previous Conservative government brought in a Safe Schools Act... that had zero tolerance for schoolyard violence. If you committed an act of violence on school property... you were out... no mercy.
But, it seems... and this is the best part... Dalton and Company just recently tossed that legislation out... because, well... the kids getting tossed out were, uh... how can I say this... almost uniformly multicultural.
So what's Dalton's solution?
Yeah, you guessed it... another huge contribution from you... the benevolent Ontario taxpayer.
Education Minister Kathleen Wynne laid out plans yesterday to allocate $43 million for additional social workers and psychologists for schools across the province to help tackle school violence before it happens.Uh, Kathleen... does that include the kids who aren't swinging pipes?
"Every person must feel they are respected and included in our education system," she said.
LAST WORD: You think I'm exaggerating?
The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario actually calls these kids... "racialized students".
Bill 212, the Education Amendment Act, (Progressive Discipline and School Safety Act), 2007 was passed in June 2007. Its provisions take effect on February 1, 2008.Now, I'm gonna assume here, that "students with disabilities" refers to kids with... as they say... "intellectual and emotional deficits"... and not intractably violent wheelchair-bound kids with spina bifida.
The Liberal government’s Bill 212 was in response to a complaint launched by the Ontario Human Rights Commission regarding the extent to which racialized students and students with disabilities were unfairly treated through the zero tolerance approach to student discipline.
Thank you, once again, Dalton McGuinty.
