“Shellie Gudgeon, Lisa Helps support continued public subsidization of failed ‘harm reduction’ programmes in Victoria”, says Rockland Outsider Gregory Hartnell, Oak Bay City Council Candidate

Lisa Helps and Shellie Gudgeon, two independent Candidates for Victoria City Council, both support continued public subsidization of failed ‘harm reduction’ programmes in Victoria, sometimes ambiguously called one of the four pillars of the so-called ‘4 pillars’ approach to social health problems, and sold to the uninformed public as benign ‘treatment’.

Here is what Lisa Helps says at her website about this tragic life and death issue:

»   Implement a comprehensive harm reduction strategy by working with groups and agencies such as the Society of Living Intravenous Drug UsersHarm Reduction VictoriaAIDS Vancouver Island, the Downtown Victoria Business Association, the Vancouver Island Health Authority, the Victoria Police Department.

Shellie Gudgeon, a publican who owns the Fifth Street Bar and Grill, also supports continued public subsidization of failed ‘harm reduction’ programmes in the so-called ‘four pillar stategy’:

It should be recognized that Victoria is the entertainment hub for all the communities of the Lower Island and the associated issues that come with that need to be addressed. Policies need to be put in place to control the late night crowd more effectively in the downtown area. Strategies could include staggered, rotating bar closing times as well as developing public transit initiatives that help to disperse the after-closing crowd more efficiently from the downtown area.

The issue of safe injection sites is a complicated one and one that is close to Shellie’s heart as her brother died of a drug overdose.

All four pillars of addiction recovery need to be in place: reduction, prevention, treatment, and enforcement.

The city needs to learn from Vancouver’s mistakes and successes.
