Keep heroin out of our backyards

Do you want a supervised drug consumption site in your community? These are facilities where drug addicts get to shoot up heroin and other illicit drugs.

I don't want one anywhere near my home.

Yet, as I write this, special interests are trying to open up these supervised drug consumption sites in cities and towns across Canada  over the objections of local residents and law enforcement.

We've had enough — that's why I am pleased the Harper government is acting to put the safety of our communities first.

Today, the Harper government introduced tough new rules that will give local law enforcement, municipal leaders, and local residents a voice before a permit is granted for a supervised drug consumption site.

The Trudeau Liberals and Mulcair NDP are against us. They want to repeat the experiment of Vancouver's Insite facility across the country  maybe even in your community.

Because of the tough rules the Harper government introduced today, your voice will now matter.

Add your name if you demand a say before a supervised drug consumption site is opened close to your family:

P.S. Forward to your friends and family, and encourage them to add their name if they would want to be consulted before drug consumption sites are allowed to operate in their neighbourhood.
