B.C. Mayoral Candidate Suggests Using Crack As Incentive For Addicted Homeless

POSTED: 10:48 am PST November 14, 2005

KELOWNA, B.C. -- A candidate in the mayoral race in Kelowna, B.C. suggests using crack to deal with the city's drug-addicted homeless people.

Andrew Uitvlugt says crack could be used as a reward or incentive to motivate people to do constructive work in the city, like picking up garbage.

Once they've done their duties, he figures the addicts will feel so good about themselves, they may not need the crack, or less of it.

You can hear his comments in a video campaign pitch on the website okbc.tv.

The candidate also wants to move the homeless to a combined shelter and retraining center at the city dump.

He says they could use the available materials to build things and get marketable skills.

Uitvlugt is one of the five candidates running in the November 19th municipal election.

Seriously... those crazy canuckleheads!

But you know, thinking about this... maybe that would actually work... well, using crack as an incentive to make homeless people do work, that will probably work. But I doubt you can get a crackhead to feel "so good about themselves, they may not need the crack."
