We need effective safe supply now (tbh needed it yesterday). That we have allowed this many preventable deaths - and who knows how many near misses and other morbidities - says volumes. We know large and effective public health responses are possble and it's past time to do this.

It's true and, given the way far too many police officers treat women who report being sexually assaulted, is it any wonder? She said no and an officer told her it didn't matter because her body language said otherwise.

Here are some communications tips and tools to reduce harm and to stop centering white supremacy (you need to do actual work behind the scenes though, btw)

I also love when Canadians are doing their best American and then they say “mum” or “Herbs” with an H or actually pronounce a French word correctly

Especially when it's not paired with any additional investments in treatment and recovery.

Four of the reporters are located on Vancouver Island and a fifth reports for CTV's VI outlet (per Twitter bio). I think this is the first time since March that a briefing hasn't featured questions primarily from reporters in the Lower Mainland.

On today's briefing, 7 reporters got to ask questions and all but one used their follow-up for a total of 13 questions. Questions went to reporters from Global, BC Today (me), CBC, Victoria Buzz, CHLY, News1130 and InfoNews

The PHO says she'll make the time. The question now is whether the government will make her recommendations part of the committee's review - no commitment so far

Dix just acknowledged the audio issue. Looks like they're having difficulties with the gov Twitter broadcast too.

Are you on the call or watching via social media? Call audio came in late but seems to be running smoothly today (on my end at least)

I am now humming this song to myself while waiting on the line for the daily briefing so that I do not have to hear the government muzak for the eleventy billionth time

You do seem to be in the minority. Curious to see how it's aged - might have to move it up my list of cartoon series to rewatch!

Good. It takes a special kind of stupid to engage in this kind of behaviour.

Harcourt characterizing the denial of systemic racism by VPD chief as one side in a “healthy debate” is disturbing yet unsurprising. For white men this isnt a life or death situation so they can minimize it without personal consequence.

Probably nothing! Adopting was extremely competitive before covid. I never had any luck through agencies. Got my current feline roommate on Craigslist and we've been happily cohabitating for nearly 8 years 😻
