Melbourne Lord Mayor and Liberals want to know why an injecting centre is going next to iconic Queen Victoria Market

The government says the health department chose the Cohealth site after wide consultation with the social services sector.
But Victorian Liberals Leader Michael OBrien, whose party is staunchly opposed to an injecting centre near the market, said his party would be trying to use the legislative process to get answers about the choice of location.
But Mr OBrien conceded he and his colleagues would find it difficult to block the legislation Labor needs to pass to get the Victoria Street injecting room up and running.
You know what its like in the Upper House [of Parliament], the Liberal Leader said.
You might as well buy a Tatts ticket.
Cr Capp struck a more conciliatory tone on Saturday but told Joy FM that it was important to “bring the community along with you” to find the right site.
Of course any site is going to cause controversy, there are going to be objections that need to be listened to, but being part of a process that identifies the most appropriate site is really important for our community, Cr Capp said.
The Lord Mayor said she wanted to know which other sites were considered and what criteria were met for the site.
“If it turns out after that discussion that this is the most appropriate, well that will be the decision,” Cr Capp said.
The council says it would be working with the State Government on a six-month community consultation about the site.
