  1. One thing (of many things) confuses me. The Canadian public has been told the source of fentanyl coming into Canada. If it’s true, then why lie down and continue to take casualties in the so called “war on drugs”?
    Our people are being killed indiscriminately.
    Why are politicians celebrating the success of a pipeline project in one breath then wailing about the fentanyl crisis in the next breath?
    “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.” I think we get that one OK. “Friends don’t sell fentanyl to friends”. Maybe we have to work on that one a little bit.
    Keep the pipeline projects but find some new friends who want our oil but don’t want to send poison to our people.
