“I think the needle came from the consumption site," says Janessa Fyfe, who told Bridge City News that her son had described the needle, "like the kind in a doctor's office."
She says a week later his finger still had a purple mark on it and a little pin prick.
"I believe there was not a significant problem before the safe consumption site," says Fyfe. "People weren't reporting that they were seeing needles. There were no signs in parks that said 'found a needle, call this number' there was none of that before, and now we're paying the price for it."
Since then, Fyfe has made it her mission to go door-to-door petitioning to have the safe consumption site removed from Lethbridge and says she plans on being at a rally on Monday.
