Is there a secret Labor plan for Ice injecting rooms in Cranbourne?

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 Martin Foley, the Minister responsible for injecting rooms 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 when Labor says it 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 Jude Perera have been caught out lying too many times especially on injecting rooms and we all know it’s only a matter of time before that includes opening drug injecting rooms in suburbs like Cranbourne.

“The Ombudsman’s investigation into Labor’s ‘Red Shirts’ rorts has found that Labor’s campaign to elect Jude Perera rorted $21,757 from Victorian taxpayers. Jude Perera and Labor simply can’t be trusted on anything.”

Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Albert Park, Ann-Marie Hermans:

“Our community should not have to put up with having an Ice injecting room in the Cranbourne area.

“Ice addicts are often violent, dangerous and out of control and risk the safety of our community hanging around injecting rooms in suburbs like Cranbourne.

“I will be working hard with the local community to stop Labor’s secret plan to rollout more Ice injecting rooms throughout our local suburbs.”
