Tim Hortons Goes BioHazard
Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
Two things that are a sign of the times, Tim Hortons Donuts, long touted for it's coffee and donuts and family atmosphere, a National Institution by some, now has to be turned into a Legalised Shooting Gallery. Now your coffe and donuts come with convienent Washroom BioHazard containers as the Citys Crack Pipe and Needle exchange programs have junkies flocking to warmth and privacy of restaurants similar to Tim Hortons to get their fix, dropping their needles and crack pipes on the floor or on toilet tanks, sinks, for pre teen childen to find, as parents feel secure let their kids use the washroom alone certainly is not the case anymore. Certainly Needles and Crack Pipe exchange Policy, a Liberal Government Policy gone awry and as usual not though through, putting Children and adults at risk.
I have a wonderful thought, since this Liberal incentive was brought by them, I think it only fair to find as many used crack pipes and needles, gather them up and deposit them loosely, just as we found them, and spread them all over the step of the legislature, after all if it is safe for us to step through, it certainly must be safe for government officials to step through on their way up the legislature stairs to work.
A downtown Tim Hortons has been finding so many dirty needles in its washroom garbages that the owner purchased bio-medical disposable bins for addicts to toss them in.
The yellow and red bins sit on the floor next to the toilets in the washrooms of the Tim Hortons at the corner of Bank and Cooper streets.
Store supervisor John Saecheo said the owner purchased the bins when needles were being found in the garbage about three weeks after opening in January.
"There was a risk that we might hurt ourselves reaching in and getting pricked by a needle," said Saecheo.
Yesterday afternoon, the bin in the men's washroom was half full.
