Good News (in the very short term)

Federal Health Minister Tony Clement announces a six-month extension to Vancouver`s Supervised Injection Site`s exemption from the Controlled Substances Act.

Me, I`m still on vacation. But following Harper`s bullish attitude going into the upcoming Parliamentary session (he seems to be daring the Opposition to force an election), one can only assume his party is trying to keep harm reduction from becoming a campaign issue, and hoping that either A) they`ll get a majority and be able to do whatever the hell they want come June or B) it`ll be someone else`s problem and the Conservative Party can posture in indignant objection.
