Thanks for your vote, Higgins

A note of support for Dennis Higgins in voting for safe injection sites, and sincerely hoping that the remainder of the City Council somehow wakes up to the reality of the problem rather than kicking the can down the road.

Do they prefer their kids and grandkids finding needles under the bushes in parks and playgrounds to a safe location for contact and hopefully treatment?

I am not at all encouraged by the past votes of the council on medical and recreational cannabis when they voted against the two-thirds majority of the residents of this city to legalize it under the initiative, apparently putting their personal and misinformed beliefs override democracy.

What a fine example they set for our youth in their failed leadership.

Again, thank you Dennis Higgins for voting for reason and higher morals than the remainder of the crowd.
