  1. About time something was done. You should have seen the junkies that could hardly walk down the road, carrying 4 or 5 backpacks and bags, only to end up there. About time. I’ll keep an eye out, there is so much traffic there, all hours of night and day, we’ll know when he’s back in business.

  2. No more catch and release, got it judges?
    It’s more than obvious that the city needs a sizeable treatment center as well as a much larger jail, but things like this will never happen while the city is centering their focus on multi million dollar unnecessary downtown plazas instead of the real problems that they face.

    • It’s not the judges, it’s the politicians. The judges didn’t come up with Bill C-75.

      Treatment centres and jails aren’t the responsibility of the municipality, those are either federal or provincial responsibilities. Please stop placing blame where it doesn’t belong.

    • Our only hope for more effective strategies to counter crime is to get rid of Trudeau.
      His bill C-75 is directly responsible for the significant increase in crime due to the “catch & release” effect and reducing/removal of sentences for violent & career criminals.
