How not to treat alcoholism
Comment by David on 1st June 2012
A 48 year old man was arrested for the 43rd time this year and a 44 year old woman arrested for the 27th time this year for public intoxication.

The above figures confirm that treating alcoholism with the justice system does not work. Medical issues demand medical solutions. We don't put cancer patients in jail and expect them to be cured as a result, so why do we do it for alcoholism?

Our scarce tax dollars should be put towards treating alcoholism, not promoting it. There is no reason why the public and the RCMP should not be in total agreement with this concept.

So, who's opposed to reducing alcohol consumption in BC? Who's behind the pro-alcohol movement within the BC Liberal Party?

Why, none other than Rich Coleman, who will go down in history as the BC politician who decriminalized drinking and driving in BC!
Wow
