Used needles are dangerous to children, adults, and pets. They don’t belong in public spaces. We see too many needles in public spaces right now, either because people were using needles and there was no nearby metal sharps container, or because the container was breakable and broken into.
I will support more tamper-resistant metal sharps containers in more public spaces.
In most other respects, the provincial and federal governments must take the lead in combating opioid dependency or other substance abuse issues. I am interested in harm reduction where possible.
