Bright Lights, Big City

Now I don't normally comment on the news but you have to read this article.

Now I have always said the Vancouver was a city that I would not chose to live in, I never said it was a shitty place to live, but C'mon, in the streets?
And what does the Health Authority have to say?
"Defecating and urinating in the street is not something that's healthy for individuals."
No Shit, Sherlock...Wait, correct that. He then proceeds to say how dangerous the risk of salmonella is. Strait up brother, what about the risk of damage to my Pumas? How do you treat a human shitstain on your Jordans?
They feel that the problems of homelessness and drug abuse are to blame. Really? I figured it could have been some rich snob living on West Georgia who just decides to shit in the streets as to not have that Corn-on the Cob smell in his 2 million dollar condo, not some dirty old bum squatting by a dumpster out back of the White Spot.
The discussion then goes on to the topic of public toilets and the pros and cons of such. A big worry is the misuse of the toilets by junkies.
"But now I think we've come to a point in Vancouver where we have to act. The public need far outweighs those concerns. These units are going to be automated and will have a time limit on them. And really, people are going shoot drugs wherever they want."

This is from the city of Safe-Injection Sites, and free methadone. Kinda hypocritical to have Safe sites if people will shoot up wherever they want, eh? What's the point of it all? Why not just hand out a needle and a roll of ass-wipe to each junkie and tell them to let'er rip, "Smoke 'em if ya got 'em"

The reason I'm not in public politics is because I would fucking lose it at the press conference on stuff like this.

"What's your response to the homeless people and drug addicts defecating in the streets?"

"Eat more fiber"
