Trudeau was in the B.C. Interior on Monday to survey the damage caused by wildfires, where almost 50,000 people were from their homes at the peak of the crisis.

Nice of you to pop by Justin and take a looksee at the areas that have been devastated by the wildfires here.

Quote:
The prime minister also spoke at a $1,000-a-plate Liberal fundraising dinner in Surrey on Monday, where he urged the crowd of about 250 people to donate to the Canadian Red Cross to help those displaced by wildfires.

Gee... here's a thought... why not take that money from your little fundraiser to give to the people that have been directly affected by the wildfires? I know $250,000 isn't much but I'd rather see this going towards helping out folks with their bills than see another 30second ad on TV telling me how great you are.

And while we're at it how about you stop handing OUR money out to other countries and keep a little fund handy so when the need arises in CANADA when events such as this happens we can help our own out eh?

Hmmm. This is a tough one. 8)

There wouldn't be this so-called opioid crisis if the medical system in this stupid country bothered to take long-term chronic pain seriously as an issue. It's an untreated pain crisis, not a drug addiction one. :evil:

Around here the problem is heroin and then doctors being too loose on prescribing opioids.

It's the same problem here, the drug companies pushed Oxy use through the roof, now we see the people cut off prescription meds going to heroin. And because of cheap and legal Chinese shipments, fentanyl is making it's way into the heroin (and meth and weed . . .) exacerbating the problem and killing people.

There's about 600 homicides every year in Canada. This year's projection is 1400 deaths in BC alone from overdoses.
Let's joke about it and belittle any effort to do something.

I was not joking about that or belittling at all. It's horrible and it has become imperative that governments work together. That was part of his meeting with Robertson. This issue is a personal one for me as a young man I know very well is addicted to heroin and on at least one occasion has had fentanyl in it as he tested positive. It's frightening for his family as they struggle to get him the right help to get off that shit before it kills him.


My remarks were about his party's fundraiser dinner in Surrey. I get that political parties always need/want more money from contributions from their supporters. This dinner had nothing to do with his discussions with Robertson.

Fentanyl is synthetic, requires work to make it.

No but you tried to link completely unrelated things together to make a criticism of Trudeau.
What Canada spends in foreign aid has nothing to do with anything domestically. And he's meeting with the Mayor of Vancouver where fentanyl overdoses, transit and housing are the issues, not forest fires. Well other than they're choking on the smoke instead of us...

Strutz was making the point that charity starts at home. A fact that is completely lost on Trudeau.
