The scripted lobbing of questions from #RedDeer MLA Jason Stephan (so many Jasons) serves to reintroduce the now-infamous #SCSReview panel report.

You know, that one that was based on zero scientific analysis?

From the panel with zero experience working in or using an SCS?
Here’s criminologist @dr_jdlivingston breaking down significant flaws in the so-called robust SCS Review Report.
Here’s addiction medicine physician @tdbrothers further breaking down horrible inaccuracies and flawed methodology of the SCS review report.
Associate Minister Luan has decided enough time has passed, and people have forgotten.

He touts the report as being based on sound evidence, providing clear conclusions that SCS create ‘needles everwhere’ and ‘more death’.

Jason is really good at evidence.
The truth about SCS is quite the opposite; they save lives and reduce community harms.

They are a vital response to the #overdose crisis killing 2 Albertans every. single. day.

The return of the UCP attack on SCS has been an inevitability—they would never invest that much time and money to gaslight a service without finishing the job.

Yesterday, government reps also admitted that overdose was on the rise in Alberta.

By how much? They don’t know. 🤷‍♂️
This entire exchange is a poorly veiled set up for bad news to come.

This is happening at an increasingly high risk time for overdose.

In February of this year, we showed the provincial government what would happen if they defunded SCS in #Alberta.

Clearly they’ve forgotten.
