“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

FORSETH -- These malignant scums of society need to go from their palatial homes, to instead living a cold prison cell


Yesterday, the tragedy of hundreds of lives lost due to drugs, addictions, and a poisoned drug supply was reported on once again – but was anyone listening?

Have we tuned out to the monthly reports of lives lost? 

Month after month the BC Coroner’s Service announces the raw numbers of men and women ... husbands and wives ... brothers and sisters ... fathers and mothers ... that have been lost.  Immediately on the heels of that comes a statement from the Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, Sheila Malcolmson, declaring what a tragedy it is.

What follows are the last seven months worth of “talk” about the situation ... about how those lives are being mourned ... about the sorrow felt ... the heartbreaking loss ... about those grieving ... not allowing this tragedy to continue ...

And yet -- month after month -- it does.

Some of the most sick individuals in society are praying upon those suffering from the horrendous effects of addictions – and worse yet – they are poisoning the very drug supply they are feeding the addicted with. It’s murder, plan and simple, but the law and the courts allow them to get away with it.

It seems poisoning drug addicts is okay and allowed, but if an individual was to poison their spouse, say, well that would be a different story.

Why is that? As you read the following direct quotes from BC government media releases, ask yourself these two questions ... “Why is it allowed, why does it continue?”

And better yet ask yourself WHY we do not have the facilities needed – for immediate access – to help those suffering from addictions issues to be able to begin breaking the horrendous cycle they are on?

 

In March, 158 people lost their lives to a toxic illicit drug supply in B.C. It’s a heartbreaking loss, and we stand with everyone mourning the death of a loved one.


“Today, people in every community throughout the province hold sorrow in their hearts for loved ones lost, as we mark the sombre five-year anniversary of British Columbia’s overdose emergency. “As we grieve the more than 7,000 people who have died by overdose since the public health emergency began, we reaffirm that we cannot – and will not – allow this tragedy to continue


“In February, we lost 155 people to a toxic illicit drug supply in B.C. They were taken too soon. It’s a heartbreaking loss.|


We lost 165 more family members, friends, co-workers and teammates
in January as a result of the toxic illicit drug supply in B.C. This staggering number follows the deadliest year our province has ever experienced when it comes to the overdose crisis. This level of loss is hard to bear, and we mourn with everyone who has lost a loved one.

In 2020, 1,716 people lost their lives to a toxic illicit drug supply in B.C. This overwhelming loss of life is felt deeply in every community, and we mourn with families, friends, co-workers and teammates who are grieving unbearably tragic loss.


Heartbreakingly, 153 people lost their lives in November due to a dramatically more toxic drug supply in B.C. These are our parents, children, friends and neighbours in communities across B.C.


The BC Coroners Service has published updated reports on illicit drug toxicity deaths and fentanyl-detected drug deaths to October 31, 2020, with 162 illicit drug toxicity deaths reported in October. The latest data equate to five people per day losing their lives to illicit drug overdoses.


“This is the fifth month this year with more than 160 suspected illicit drug deaths reported to the BC Coroners Service and more than double the number of people who died as a result of a toxic drug supply in October 2019,” said Lisa Lapointe, chief coroner.


In September 2020, there were 127 suspected illicit drug toxicity deaths. This represents a 112% increase over the number of deaths in September 2019


The BC Coroners Service has published updated reports on illicit drug toxicity deaths and fentanyl-detected drug deaths to the end of August 2020, with 147 illicit drug toxicity deaths reported in the month. The illicit drug toxicity death total represents a 71% increase over the number of deaths in August 2019

 

Those raking in blood money from creating a poison drug supply need to know that this will no longer be allowed to continue.

These malignant scums of society need to go from their palatial homes, to instead living a cold prison cell.

It’s time – no it’s well past time – to actually do something about this.

It seems the call for blood donors is being responded to, however ... “This effort is a marathon, not a sprint” says Canadian Blood Services

A week and a half ago I wrote the commentary ... “ While the national inventory is currently strong, an increase in blood donor cancellations is a warning sign of potential challenges to maintaining a health inventory of blood ” It was written as a result of talk about a potential blood shortage that would occur if people stopped donating due to the COVID-19 virus. It seems the call to Canadians was responded to, however, as I was told this afternoon ... “ T his effort is a marathon, not a sprint ”. As it now stands now, donors are able to attend clinics which are held in Vancouver (2), Victoria, Surrey, and in Kelowna, so I asked if there any plans to re-establish traveling clinics to others communities - for example in Kamloops, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke or Cranbrook, and perhaps further north at perhaps Ft. St. John? According to Communications Lead Regional Public Affairs Specialist Marcelo Dominguez, Canadian Blood Services is still on

FEDLSTED -- Rules will have to relax-- the question is how and when

The media has created a fervour over the mathematical models that allegedly help governments predict the future of Coronavirus infections in the general population. Mathematical modelling has limited use and value. We need to understand is that the data available on Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Canada is far too small for statistical reliability. The data available for the whole world is useless due to variables in how nations responded to Coronavirus infections. There is no commonality in steps taken to combat virus spread and no similarity in the age demographics of world nations, so the numbers you see on the daily tracking of world infections are not useful in developing a model of infection rates that can be relied on. Mathematical models of the future spread of Coronavirus are better than nothing, but not a whole lot better.  Mathematical models must include assumptions on virus spreads, and various factors involved. As they are used in projections, a small erro

When necessary – and only when necessary – the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program can attach (garnish) wages

Alan Forseth ~~ Kamloops, BC ~~ May 15th Earlier this week (Monday May 13 th ) the BC government announced it would be establishing a new Crown agency to oversee the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP).   They indicated that on or before the end of October, the provision of family maintenance services would transition from a contracted service provider, to the newly created Crown agency. Apparently, this was to ensure that family maintenance enforcement services for vulnerable British Columbians continue uninterrupted. Seeing this story, reminded me of a woman ( we’ll call her Mary Brown ) who had email me some time b ack about this very thing, and questions she had about how maintenance enforcement was imposed and enforced. She said to me, “ I’m just curious if you can get any statistics of the homeless men and woman, that have children, that they are paying family maintenance in support of their children”.  “I am not about to sugg
