Re: Canada’s first in-hospital overdose prevention site touts lives saved in first year

The headline regarding St. Paul’s Hospital’s overdose prevention site was accurate [free from error or defect; precise; exact. b) careful or meticulous.] when it used touts [to describe or advertise boastfully; publicize or promote;].

I lack sufficient information, and/or access to information to determine the facts regarding the claim “first overdose prevention site inside a Canadian acute-care hospital’; in particular the exact definition of what constitutes or differentiates an ‘acute-care hospital.

Until the panic, anxiety, paralyzing fear, tremors etcetera started attack cycles.

Breathe…..In…..Out…..In…..Out…..Breathe…..

Panicked at Possibly Living in My Car Again.

As if Christmas is not stressful enough I found out just before Christmas that I had a little over a month to move – the end of January as the house was sold, the new owners took possession in February and would not be renting the suite to me.

I had no idea the owner was looking to sell much less that the that the house was up for sale and was caught totally off guard.

Toxic Drug Deaths – A Tsunami Bullsh*t

For the first time since the start of the pandemic in March of 2020 BC’s 87 MLAs gathered together in the BC legislature Monday October 4, 2021.

While the requirement that MLAs be fully vaccinated was new, the practice of non-government politicians playing political games to score political points with the voters and the government’s copious use of bullsh*t to deny responsibility and avoid the loss of political points during question period was business as usual. As evidenced by the issue of toxic drug deaths.
