“One of the five candidates running for mayor in Kelowna is suggesting an unusual approach to deal with the city’s drug addicted homeless people. Andrew Uitvlugt says crack cocaine could be used as a reward or incentive to motivate people to pick up garbage in the city. He believes the addicts will start to feel good about themselves and need less crack as a result. Uitvlugt would also like the homeless to have access to the city dump saying they could use scavenged materials to build things and get marketable skills.”
Seriously. This is a real story in the news.
