Those wacky West Coasters

The takeaway here is that weak-willed British Columbians are apparently unable to resist sticking loaded guns in their mouths...dead, dead, dead

As a fentanyl crisis ravages B.C., funeral parlours are being advised to stock naloxone kits to reverse possible overdoses among mourners at services or staff who handle bodies of overdose victims.

The B.C. Funeral Association sent a bulletin to members in early November explaining the importance of carrying the kits, said executive director Charlotte Poncelet.

“It should be something that you just do.”
Sure thing, Charlotte. I can't wait to see the mega lawsuits that ensue the first time some embalmer's gofer injects naloxone into someone who is having a cardiac episode, or going into diabetic shock.

Besides, Prime Minister Care Bear has this whole "drug crisis" under control... he's gonna flood the streets with government-subsidised loco-weed. Problem solved.

...you're not managing...
A simple test at the age of three can determine whether children will grow up to be a burden on society, needing excessive welfare, spending time in prison or becoming obese, a 35-year study has shown.

After 35 years, the researchers found one fifth of the group was responsible for 81 per cent of the group’s overall criminal convictions, three quarters of its drug prescriptions, two thirds of welfare benefit payments and more than half of nights in hospital.
So will the federal government step up and initiate testing?

Fentanyl crisis is the direct result of Mexican drug cartels expanding in Canada - something CBC and Pot head Justin say is not happening

i'd love to see justin deal with the ever increasing number of accidents caused by drunk drivers... you know... something like legislating giant pedestrian sized airbags on the front of all newly manufactured cars.

i mean, we wouldn't want to start putting drunk drivers behind bars.

Fentanyl overdoses are a self correcting problem. For those who will say that's mean I'd suggest you look in the mirror. What I mean is that it's becoming clear even among the most idiotic of drug users that they could literally die from the next hit. It will take a while, but they'll start to think pretty seriously about quitting and less people will start. Those who fail to do either of those things will die. Stepping in to save them is the worst thing to do.

Don't forget the climate - Vancouver is so much less nasty in the winter that there is a continual trek west of the druggies.

old white guy says............a test for three year olds. I wonder will it be as valid as the psych test 80 year old drivers have to face in Ontario to keep their licence. having any idiot brand a three year old for life is something that needs to stopped dead in it's tracks.

"anon says... something that needs to stopped dead in it's tracks"

well, unless it works. and apparently, these children are not ostracised, they are targeted for special attention and treatment.

note that it would not be "any idiot" branding anyone.

unlike, say... freddy the hearse driver mainlining narcan into senior citizens who faint at funerals.

old white guy says..........neo, you do know that everything put on a child's record stays with that child until death and is available to a multitude of government organizations. It is far from harmless and those stupid enough to allow it have serious problem with personal freedom.

Neo Conservative said...

except, of course, that it has been statistically proven that the people identified as problems have been statistically proven to be the kids who end up in prison, acting out all through their youth and becoming junkies or criminals.

this is worth taking a good look.
