This just in:

Recieved in the mail Oct 13, 2006 in response to my (late) letter of Aug 28, 2006.
From the Hon. Tony Clement, Minister of Health.

Dear Ms. [my name here]

Thank-you for your correspondence concerning Vancouver's supervised injection site, also known as Insite.

The research that has been completed to date on this project is not conclusive. As a result, there are outstanding questions that must be answered before the Government of Canada can make an informed decision about the future of supervised injection sites in Canada. Insite will continue to operate until December 31, 2007, while additional research is conducted to determine how such sites affect crime, and drug prevention and treatment.

Thank you for taking the time to write on this important issue.

Yours sincerely,

[signature: Tony Clement]
