Is there a secret Labor plan for an Ice injecting room in Narre Warren North?

Opposition Press Releases

Today, reports exposed Labor’s plan to allow methamphetamine, or Ice, to be used in its North Richmond drug injecting room.

This followed a promise from Daniel Andrews’ Mental Health Minister Martin Foley that

"…methamphetamine and ice will not be allowed. It's a different type of drug and a different type of risk that comes with it" (The Age, 31 October 2017)

Victorians couldn’t trust Daniel Andrews when he promised in 2014 that he wouldn’t introduce a drug injecting room in our state.

Daniel Andrews has lied before on drug injecting rooms and he will lie again.

How can we believe Daniel Andrews and Luke Donnellan when they say they won’t introduce one in our neighbourhood?

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Mental Health, Emma Kealy

“Daniel Andrews’ drug injecting room will destroy lives, not save them.

“Daniel Andrews and Labor Member for Narre Warren North, Luke Donnellan, cannot be trusted on Heroin and Ice injecting rooms.

“Luke Donnellan lives in North Fitzroy, 45 kilometres away from Narre Warren North and doesn’t understand the drug and crime problems in his own electorate.

“The Ombudsman’s investigation into Labor’s ‘Red Shirts’ rorts has found that Labor’s campaign to elect Luke Donnellan rorted $15,717.00 from Victorian taxpayers. Labor and Luke Donnellan simply can’t be trusted.

“Daniel Andrews and his Labor MPs have been caught out lying too many times on injecting rooms and we all know it’s only a matter of time before Daniel Andrews’ plan includes opening drug injecting rooms in suburbs like Narre Warren and Hallam.”

Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Narre Warren North, Vikki Fitzgerald:

“Our community should not have to put up with having an Ice injecting room in suburbs like Narre Warren and Hallam.

“Ice addicts are often violent, dangerous and out of control and risk the safety of our community hanging around Ice injecting rooms suburbs like Narre Warren and Hallam.
    
“I will be working hard with the local community to stop any secret plan by Luke Donnellan and Labor to rollout more Ice injecting rooms throughout our local suburbs.”
