Safe consumption site among addictions promises from Manitoba NDP – Winnipeg


Manitoba New Democrats are promising to open a safe consumption site for drugs such as methamphetamines if they win the provincial election.

NDP Leader Wab Kinew says he would also expand addictions treatment programs and establish a meth intervention program in Winnipeg.

Kinew says the measures would cost $3.5 million a year and reduce the number of used needles found around the city.

He also says it would get more people off drugs and reduce rates of crime and disease.

The NDP say the Progressive Conservative government has failed to act as meth use has grown across Manitoba.
