I think communities absolutely have to have an opinion, but it needs to be an informed opinion, and informed on the evidence. There is a lot of evidence about InSite and its effectiveness, not just at saving people's lives but also its impact on crime, the impact on the community. You're absolutely right that the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver is a community like no other, thankfully, in this country. There are many challenges in that community.
I think the model of InSite as a stand-alone safe injection site is not what we're looking at in many communities. What we're looking at are what we're calling “safe consumption services”, meaning the ability of people to use it in an environment where they can obtain the health care they need if they need it. But I think we miss the very first part of our message, that this is dangerous and you shouldn't do it. As Dr. Juurlink says, people are going to use drugs, and what we have to do is to provide the opportunity for them to stay alive long enough to reach their potential in life.
I think safe consumption services do that, but they need to be integrated into the health service system. The Dr. Peter Centre is another good example of this, where they're working very quietly within the provision of other health services. It's been a very effective service. We've done a lot of work with our law enforcement colleagues in B.C., and they have talked to the Vancouver Police Department about how well this is working.
