‘Drug dens’: Poilievre calls out Trudeau’s misleadingly named ‘safe’ injection sites

Pierre Poilievre haș again sounded off on the Trudeau government’s ‘safe’ injection sites and other drug measures, policies which have been followed by an uptick in drug overdoses wherever implemented.

Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre has condemned Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government and the mainstream media for concealing the failure of federally-subsidized “safe” injection sites for hard drug use.

During a July 12 press conference in Montreal, Quebec, Poilievre slammed politicians and mainstream media alike for masking the failure of the Trudeau government-led “supervised injection sites,” pointing out the misleading nature of the term “safe” often used when discussing these facilities, which allow addicts to abuse themselves by injecting deadly narcotics such as heroin.

“I know wacko politicians in the Liberals and the NDP [New Democratic Party] and their supporters in the media want to make it sound like there’s a constitutional obligation that we allow these drug dens anywhere they want to go up,” said Poilievre. “That is not true. That is the opposite of true.” 

Poilievre’s remarks were delivered in a kindergarten playground near Montreal’s first federally-subsidized injection site that opened on April 15.  

Poilievre promised that “there will not be a single taxpayer dollar from a Poilievre government going to drug dens.”  

“Every single penny will go to treatment and recovery services to bring our loved ones home drug-free,” he added. 

Poilievre further called out mainstream media reporters for repeating Trudeau’s claim that the drug sites are “safe” or “supervised.” 

“What will you do around safe injection sites across the country?” Globe & Mail reporter Eric Andrew-Gee questioned. 

“You guys repeat the same language you get from the radical Liberal-NDP activists and bureaucracy,” said Poilievre. “You call them safe. How can they be safe? Do you think it’s safe when a bullet comes flying out of one these sites to kill a mother in Toronto? Do you think that’s safe? Do you think it’s safe to have people using crack and heroin and cocaine next to a playground like this? Do you think that is safe? It’s not safe.”  

Poilievre’s mention of the Toronto mother is a reference to the 2023 shooting death of Karolina Huebner-Makurat, a 44-year-old mother of two. Police allege Huebner-Makurat was killed by a stray bullet fired by a man in a drug-related dispute with another man outside of an injection site in the city’s Leslieville neighborhood.

In addition to injection sites, the Trudeau government has also been involved in the distribution of drugs to addicts. In fact, Health Canada recently noted that the Trudeau government has budgeted over $27 million in funding for “safe supply” drug programs that have been linked to increased violence and overdose deaths across Canada. 

Safe supply” is the term used to refer to government-prescribed drugs given to addicts under the assumption that a more controlled batch of narcotics reduces the risk of overdose. Critics of the policy argue that giving addicts drugs only enables their behavior, puts the public at risk, disincentivizes recovery from addiction and has not reduced – and sometimes even increased – overdose deaths when implemented. 

The best example of the Trudeau government’s drug policy failures come from the province of British Columbia. Starting in 2023, the Trudeau government decriminalized the possession of up to 2.5 grams of hard drugs without criminal penalty.

Shortly thereafter, record numbers of overdose deaths and similar incidents occurred, leading to the province itself requesting that the Trudeau government recriminalize drugs in public spaces.

Nearly two weeks later, the Trudeau government announced it would “immediately” end the allowance of hard drug use in public, which critics see as tacit admission the policy was a disaster.

The effects of decriminalizing hard drugs have been the source of contention throughout the country, as evidenced in Aaron Gunn’s documentary, Canada is Dying, and in U.K. Telegraph journalist Steven Edginton’s mini-documentary,  Canada’s Woke Nightmare: A Warning to the West. 

Gunn, who has since become a Conservative Party candidate, previously noted that his film shows clearly the “general societal chaos and explosion of drug use in every major Canadian city” since lax policies were implemented.

“Overdose deaths are up 1,000 percent in the last 10 years,” he said in his film, adding that “every day in Vancouver four people are randomly attacked.”

2.5 million in Ontario don’t have family doctor as COVID mandates for health workers remain

While the official number of nurses and other workers relieved of their duties for refusing to take the experimental injections remains uncertain, Raphael Gomez, director of the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Relations at the University of Toronto, told CTV Newsthat as many as 10 percent of nurses in the province either quit or retired early as a result of the mandates.  

While COVID vaccine mandates remain, Ontario physicians are demanding “urgent support” for the 2.5 million residents of the province who are currently without a family doctor.

In a July 11 press release, the Ontario College of Family Physicians called for urgent support for the 2.5 million Ontarians who are without a family doctor, amid ongoing hospital staff shortages that were ostensibly worsened due to the imposition of COVID vaccine mandates.

“Every Ontarian deserves a family doctor, and patients should be able to find one in their community,” said Dr. Mekalai Kumanan, president of the Ontario College of Family Physicians. “System-wide issues are stretching family doctors far beyond capacity. We need to address the pressing issues facing family doctors today.”   

According to new data, the number of Ontarians without a family doctor has risen from 1.8 million in 2020 to 2.5 million as of September 2023 The data further revealed that over 160,000 people were added to the list in a six-month period alone. 

Dr. Archna Gupta, family doctor and researcher with Upstream Labs, explained that not having a family doctor often means “patients may need to rely on hospital emergency departments more frequently and do not get screened for cancer as often.” 

Ontario’s doctor and healthcare staff shortage comes as the province continues to mandate COVID vaccines to work in hospital settings.  

Indeed, according to recently released figures, Ontario will need 33,200 more nurses and 50,853 more personal support workers by 2032 to fill the healthcare workers shortage – figures the Progressive Conservative government of Doug Ford had asked the Information and Privacy Commissioner to keep secret.  

While the official number of nurses and other workers relieved of their duties for refusing to take the experimental injections remains uncertain, Raphael Gomez, director of the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Relations at the University of Toronto, told CTV Newsthat as many as 10 percent of nurses in the province either quit or retired early as a result of the mandates.  

“I believe that anyone continuing to administrate these mandates rather than halting these injections entirely, because of their extreme danger signals, is negligent if not intentionally criminal,” he declared.  

“They are pretending that they did not just severely screw up thus killing and injuring many innocent people,” Trozzi explained. “In continuing the mandates and not halting the injections, they persist in placing their own interests to cover their guilt and maintain their profits; rather than even remotely serve their duty to protect human life. It is my opinion that they should be removed from office in handcuffs and prosecuted.”  

Trozzi further pointed out that the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) is both creating and “solving” the doctor shortage.   

“The leadership of Canada’s colleges of physicians and surgeons along with guilty person’s in provincial and federal governments, stripped the licenses of our most trust-worthy physicians and nurses,” he explained.  

“They also forced an exodus of quieter but intelligent doctors who quietly refused to be injected with the C-19 genetic ‘vaccines’,” Trozzi continued. “What makes this worse, is the current precedent being set, which is to inject and muzzle all our still licensed doctors and nurses and eliminate any doctor or nurse who warns the public with true science.” 

Indeed, those who dare to speak out against the dangers of the COVID vaccine are punished even more severely than those who quietly refused the shot. 

In April, LifeSiteNews reported that Canadian nurse Kristen Nagle was found guilty of violating Ontario’s COVID rules for participating in an anti-lockdown rally and speaking out against COVID mandates.  

While her fine was massively reduced, she was still placed under a two-year probation, which she said is designed to stop her from “speaking out or going against public health measures.” 

“The doctors, nurses and scientists who will protect and serve them no matter what, have been removed from their service,” Trozzi warned. “People should fight.”
