Mr. Speaker, indeed, it is a very long title. I tried to get it shortened to FedDev, but they do not do that here.
I appreciate the member's contribution to the debate this evening. On a side note, if the member wants to talk about what politicking is all about, I can assure him it is not about using taxpayers' money, illegally, to send out mailings.
In terms of creating scare tactics for Canadians, it was not the government that made this statement: “Medicalized heroin maintenance has been used very successfully in places like Europe”. In fact, it was the member's own colleague from Vancouver East who made that statement.
My question is this. Where do we go from here, besides randomly allowing injection sites to happen in any community, which is what the NDP wants, without the consultation of parents and communities, which is what we are asking for?
What the NDP wants is unfettered access to injection sites in any community, without participation of the community. Is the next step that the NDP will ask the federal government, through taxpayers' dollars, to provide medicalized heroin as well?
As we all know, the heroin people take to these clinics is from pushers. It is not safe. Is that next on the agenda?
