We applied under the Access to Information Act, and we found that $18 million was given to the same three individuals who lobbied for InSite in 2001-02. They were given this money to carry out studies, and without exception, every study showed that it was absolutely the most successful endeavour ever undertaken. They found nothing wrong with it. Other professionals, psychologists and researchers, have criticized their studies. The Australian team, and two out of Vancouver—Simon Fraser—also found these studies were very flawed and unacceptable.
Under section 56 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, an exception can be made for the use of drugs for research or medical reasons. The loophole to set up InSite was for research purposes, so for these activists who wanted InSite, it behooved them to be sure that everything was very successful...so the loophole would show, the research would show, that this was a wonderful idea and a great concept.
That's where every single one of the studies quoted was by the same three who had lobbied for InSite from the very beginning.
