To the editor:

Re: "Sullivan to discuss drugs with Harper," April 18.

So, MLA Lorne Mayencourt calls the evidence from the scientific
evaluation of Vancouver's safe injection site "spotty at best."

Isn't this the same MLA that gave B.C. the Safe Streets Act, which is
designed to persecute the very poorest, and also the Apology Act,
which allows the B.C. government to weasel out of any meaningful
compensation for wrongdoings to persons or groups by apologizing to
them without fear of being sued?

Forgive me for stating the obvious, but it seems as if Mayencourt's
record is "spotty at best."
