Rona Ambrose, and the Con War on the Sick
Well I see it didn't take long for the new/nouveau Con Health Minister Rona Ambrose to show her true colours.
Health Minister Rona Ambrose is slamming her own department's decision to provide heroin to certain addicts under a special access program and insisting it won't be allowed to happen again.
"Our government takes seriously the harm caused by dangerous and addictive drugs," Ambrose said. "These drugs tear families apart, promote criminal behaviour, and destroy lives.
By suggesting that doctors are acting like drug dealers.
Showing her appalling ignorance by claiming the small group of desperately addicted people who would be treated this way should be given methadone. When the reason they're being given heroin is because methadone has FAILED.
Thus living up to her stirling reputation...
While playing cheap politics with the lives of others.
New Democrat health critic Libby Davies accused Ambrose of playing politics with "life and death situations" for chronic drug users. "Medicalized heroin maintenance has been used very successfully and in places like Europe is seen as part of treatment," Davies said.
And sounding like a MANIAC.
Or just another ghastly Con who would put foul ideology before the needs of the sick and the most vulnerable...
But then why should we be surprised eh? When the Cons have been down this road before. Trying to kill the wonderfully human Insite clinic in Vancouver over and over again.
Even though it has saved countless lives.
And this whole anti-human approach could only spring from the diseased mind of someone like Stephen Harper. Who would wage war on the sick just to please his vengeful bloodthirsty base, and the wacko voices in his head.
Stephen Harper's attitude about how society should treat drug addicts was outlined in a 2003 essay he wrote about the Left called "Rediscovering the Right Agenda," published in Report magazine:
"This descent into nihilism... leads to silliness such as moral neutrality on the use of marijuana or harder drugs mixed with its random moral crusades on tobacco. It explains the lack of moral censure on personal foibles of all kinds, extenuating even criminal behaviour with moral outrage at bourgeois society, which is then tangentially blamed for deviant behaviour."
Or satisfy his depraved and apparently insatiable need to punish others. No matter how many Canadians might suffer or DIE.
Oh boy.Talk about the bestial horror of Harperland. And the good news?
The more we know him, the more he disgusts us, and the more people understand why we absolutely have to defeat him and his filthy Cons.
And as for the little Insite clinic, it just celebrated its tenth birthday !!!!
Vancouver’s supervised injection site — the only legal supervised injection site in North America — is marking 10 years since its doors first opened. According to Vancouver Coastal Health, Insite has seen more than two million visitors since 2003 and not a single death.
And isn't that AWESOME?
Yup. Here's to the people who work there. Here's to the healers of this world, my heroes. Those on the front lines of misery who put people first. The good, the kind, and the noble, who make us proud to be Canadians.
Down with the Con war on the sick.
Damn the village idiot.
Damn their monstrous leader.
And as always, for Kevin and all the others who couldn't be saved.
Damn the demon heroin...
