Whitehorse – The City of Whitehorse would like to inform its citizens that it is in no way endorsing or affiliated with the Free The Beat Foundation’s Safe Ride Home Program, nor its plan to set up a safe injection site in the city. 

Mr. MacKenzie has not made the proper applications under the Vehicle for Hire Bylaw to transport people in his vehicle, the Magic Cool Bus. As a result, Mr. MacKenzie has not met any of the regulatory requirements that would allow him to run this program at this time.

The safety of our citizens is of utmost importance to us. The City of Whitehorse supports the practice of a designated driver, and if that includes a vehicle for hire, they must meet the requirements under the Vehicle for Hire Bylaw. 

If you wish to report a Vehicle for Hire violation, please call 667-2111.
