Community and Protective Services Committee last night received a study from city staff suggesting it would cost taxpayers $15 million over 5 years, including $5 million from local taxpayers, to set up safe drug injection sites "to fix a growing drug problem in London's core," according to the London Free Press. Coun. David Winninger contends that the tax dollars will be "extremely well spent" to reduce the number of needles found downtown. If masking the appearance of a "growing drug problem" is the fix, then hiring a few extra street cleaners downtown should be a much cheaper solution. But who requests these studies?
