If you build it...

...they will come...

"This month, none of the health officials voiced any hope that the end of the crisis is in sight."
Remember, this is the province that fought for the right to hand out government financed diacetylmorphine, aka "prescription heroin" to it's burgeoning junkie population.

Just as a side note, Mrs Neo and I no longer even have a family physician as he has apparently moved on to greener pastures. Apparently, there's money to shoot up hardcore junkies... but not to provide enough family doctors for the rest of us.

As a cynical old white guy the dope death count will gradually slow down.
There is not an endless supply of fools, except in Government of course.
It is amazing the resources that are squandered on people that insist on committing suicide.
If on the other hand Neo you or your missus need knee or hip surgery.......

Nothing says progressive love like prolonging a junky's addiction.

free heroin for junkies... grafting biologically reciprocal genitals onto mental patients... where does it all end?

will future historians look upon this period as "the crazy years?"

Neo - always there these "government needs to do something"; never hear any practical suggestions as to what government is supposed to do that will actually solve or - at the least - ameliorate the problem.

Frances, if I may offer an opinion on your question - what we see in these insane policies is essentially government immorality - in this case it is immoral to waste precious finite public medicine resources on frivolous programs to prolong the slow motion suicide of a drug addict when there are taxpayers who can't afford the prescription drugs required of their ailment, or there is a Canadian in a waiting line for needed surgury or a child with a rare cancer being told he can;t be treated because the cure is not provided under the public system.

These are crimes against the better good of the majority - a breach of public trust - years ago such things were unheard of because politicians were personally accountable to the law for malfeasance or criminal breaches of public trust - so tday this occurs because the law does not apply to the political class.

How that changes is by a Trump-like populist uprising - or if that is impossible, an effective revolt by the public against a corrupt regime/system.

Personally I think most of the woes I hear Canadians lament, are due to this above the law mentality of governments and, I believe a wide public protest strike is in order - a tax strike by aggrieved Canadians who have been left no recourse to change a corrupt government or political system - tax strikes work - they brought down soviet regimes where force of arms would not.
