The Q2 opioid response numbers were finally released, and they're devastating. These dismal numbers are exactly what advocates feared. It's vital that this government urgently change the course of their addictions strategy and commit to expanding supervised consumption services. Harm reduction saves lives—without access people die. This pattern cannot be allowed to continue.

Who's getting sick? Who's at greatest risk? What Canada's numbers show after 8 months of COVID-19 | CBC News

cbc.ca CBC News has dug deep into the data on over 120,000 COVID-19 cases collected by the Public Health Agency of Canada to examine how the illness affects the young, the elderly, men and women in order to better understand what's most likely to land you in hospital — or worse.

An interesting fact about Resusci Anne - CPR doll.

This is the DEATH MASK of a young woman who drowned in the River Seine in the 1880s. As was customary in those days, her corpse was put on display in the Paris mortuary, in the hope that someone might recognize her and claim her body. The pathologist on duty became entranced by the girl with the enigmatic half-smile, and so he commissioned a plaster cast made of her face. This mask was replicated many times over. She became known as "L'Inconnue de la Seine,” or “The Unknown Woman of the Seine.”

In 1955, a toymaker named Asmund Laerdal created what we now know as the CPR doll. Asmund wanted his mannequin to have a natural appearance. Remembering a mask on the wall of his grandparents' house many years earlier, he decided that the L'Inconnue de la Seine would become the face of Resusci Anne. So you see, this anonymous woman who drowned in the 19th century is responsible for saving many, many lives the world over. It is said that she has the most kissed face of all time. I hope you enjoyed this little #histmed tale!

#AISH eligibility should be determined by doctors, not by politicians. For this government to discount the "severity" of Albertans' mental health disabilities is to contribute to worsening the stigma and social issues surrounding our existing mental health crisis.

“The cuts, whether they be cuts to the people that get the AISH program, cuts to health benefits, cuts to people’s income, I think will cost people their lives.”
