Insite saves lives

On Wednesday Feb. 10, 3 days before the Olympics are to start, the Hon. Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister of Canada, is rumoured to be inside the Chinese Cultural Centre of Vancouver in the Down Town East Side.

The day before the PM’s government announced that it would appeal a recent decision by of the BC Supreme Court that Insite, a safe injection site, could remain open as it was a matter of health which is a provincial jurisdiction.

The demo was to welcome the PM on his first day in Vancouver for the start of 2010 Winter Games and to protest the waste of tax money on a legal appeal on a proven evidence base health care intervention that saves lives.
