Ontario Health Minister Eric Hoskins says the government is allocating more than $222-million over three years for harm-reduction services and treatment to combat the province's opioid crisis.
As we slouch toward our retirement years, Mrs Neo and I are once again without a family physician. It took six years to get a doctor when we moved here... during that time we were dependent on the local hospital emergency room. Now that doctor has left for greener pastures.

This latest bit of social engineering reminds me of the 70,000,000 taxpayer dollars Kathleen Wynne dropped into the toilet to assist the "socially infertile" to have children... notwithstanding the Liberal policy to provide abortion on demand and the 40,000+ children in the custody of Ontario Childrens Aid.


While there’s no debating...

...the horrific nature of his scalp bounty, or how it conflicts with current Canadian sensibilities, scalping for profit was once common practice throughout this country. And unlike slavery, it was embraced by ALL parties.

Many Indigenous peoples were “lifting the hairs” of their enemies for centuries before that. If scalping is Canada’s original sin, then everyone’s a sinner.

Dear Toronto Star... make sure you...

...don't dig too deep...

Franc Gabriel Paisley, 29, was found in his home with obvious signs of trauma and was pronounced dead. Police are saying this is an isolated incident.
Note that an "isolated incident" is policespeak for a targeted murder of a person with a history of violence. In other words, nobody in law enforcement fell off their chair when they heard somebody lit ol' Franc up.

Turning to Google one finds...
Franc Gabriel Paisley, 23, of no fixed address, is charged with a dozen firearms-related offences including possessing a firearm contrary to a prohibition order and possessing a firearm obtained by the commission of an offence.

Police were in the area because of a recent spate of shootings in the area, including Friday’s shootout between two groups on San Romanoway.
Note the careful use of "San Romanoway"... the name of the highrise development on the northeast corner of Jane and Finch.

You just have to know, or more to the point, be willing to decipher the code. I anxiously await the Red Star's obligatory follow-up puff piece on how Franc was "turning his life around."

What is really needed is a direct injection pump, like those insulin pumps that some diabetics use. A measured dose is delivered automatically so that the user never need to come down. Add a feeding tube and waste plumbing and stack the addicts in bunks in warehouses until they die. Costs could be controlled through automation and from direct contributions BY PEOPLE WHO CARE.
