Letter to Mayor of Ottawa Larry O’Brien and city councillors re: termination of the Safer Crack Use Initiative

“I am writing to urge you to reconsider the termination of the Safer Crack Use Initiative, as decided by City Council on July 11, 2007.

“Opposition to this program is based in part on the mistaken belief that it contravenes the law . . . . We wish to explain how the distribution of safer crack kits is not only sensible as a matter of public health . . . but also permissible under Canadian law and consistent with Canada’s obligations to protect and promote health under international human rights law.”
