B.C.’s First Nation families devastated by drug deaths

Our First Nations population in Alaska are also devastated by addiction also--both alcohol and heroin. ! Addiction recently took a nephew of mine (suicide post treatment). I have strong opinions about what I think is going on but it would be politically incorrect to state them--(hint, I wouldn't hand out participation trophies and I would never create a "safe place" for anyone but a 5 year old.) the article below is heartbreaking.

B.C.’s First Nation families devastated by drug deaths: "Shirley Jones said she was devastated to learn that three young men in her family from the Tseshaht First Nation in Port Alberni died in recent weeks from suspected fentanyl overdoses. Related Victoria’s first supervised drug consumption site will take a year to open “It’s heart-wrenching living this [crisis] at work and then hearing about these young people in my mother’s family,” said Jones, who is a custodian at Our Place Society on Pandora Avenue. An overdose-prevention site has operated at the site since 2016."
