Tristin Hopper nailed it: Harm Promotion Sucks

Tristin Hopper is an award-winning reporter working for the National desk of the National Post. He just put out a timely article claiming that Vancouver’s drug strategy has been a disaster. Be very wary of emulating it. He nailed it. The Vancouver model in the DTES has been a colossal failure. It is not a model to emulate. The Pharmaceutical Fraud continues...


  1. O.K. I agree what Vancouver is doing and along with Surrey, etc. is not working. Harm reduction will only work if there is rehab and rehab is not going to be happening anywhere in B.C. in the amount it needs to be because Christy Clark wont spend the money. End of story. The voters obviously don't care enough because they most likely have returned her to office, so let the dying continue. its working for some people.

    1. The point is the Four Pillars has four pillars not just one. When you throw out the other three pillars - enforcement, treatment and prevention harm reduction alone without the other three pillars becomes harm promotion. We are witnessing a failed model.
