So there were over 10,000 overdose deaths in Canada in the last three years. That in itself is a significant number to achieve. Even in war any commander would be proud of that body count. Seems very little attention is being paid to this tragedy of mostly young people dying because of drugs from our so-called honourable leaders.
I am sure that at one point in their short lives the victims were assets to their communities, happy people who were loved and loved. Drugs took them away from their children. Drugs became more of a priority. The victims of these deaths are the children who are left without parents, but somehow these deaths are not as important as gun deaths are.
There were 424 gun-related deaths in Canada with 96 in the GTA in 2018 but the political elite do not believe it is appealing to the public to attempt to save thousands of lives of drug users who may die.
They seem focused on banning handguns from legally obtained firearms owners as it is more attractive to the voters.
Plainly put, drugs take ten times more lives than guns even with the gang violence.
Begin to deal harshly with the importers of death and then the body count from both sources may diminish.
