The elections are very soon and the mayoral candidates are actively telling their plans for meth crisis.
This problem is one of the most actual in the city at the moment. However, not all residents of the city believe that the plans proposed by the candidates will actually work.
Tim Diack was the last candidate who told his vision of the future in the city. He said that he is going to create a police unit that will consist of 12 officers and at a cost of $1.4 million. In his opinion, the addition of officers to the streets of the city is the only right decision that can help fight the meth crisis.
Jenny Motkaluk announced her plans last week. She told that she is going to create a police unit that will track the distribution of meth on the streets of the city. According to her, the main task is to reduce the spread of drugs, as a result of which fewer people will use them and many lives can be saved in the future.
The current mayor has not yet announced his plan. However, when he was offered to create safe injection sites, he did not respond with a strict refusal.
Not all city residents agree with the plans of the candidates. For example, Marion Willis from St. Boniface Street Links believes that the institution should also participate in the discussion of future plans to combat this problem. St. Boniface Street Links is a facility that treats drug addicts.
Willis informed that only two candidates offered her to meet and to discuss something.
Don Woodstock said he will reveal his really working offers quite soon.
Umar Hayat reported that he supported the idea of creating safe injection sites.
