The Opposite of Addiction is Connection
As an addiction counsellor/facilitator, I have witnessed what drug use does to the body, families and community. The war on drugs has been a colossal failure, especially in Saskatchewan. Regina has the highest IV drug use per capita and HIV rates are skyrocketing. In some areas of Saskatchewan, HIV rates are higher than they are in Africa. Not only is it shocking but it is a crisis. Perhaps it is time we forgot everything we thought we knew about addiction and follow the Portugal model. [ Read Full ]

Militarization of America's Police Force
While the debate is ongoing about the militarization of the police, the U.S.President has ordered a program review enabling law enforcement to purchase military equipment. Yet, Canadian Department of National Defence is equipping police forces across the nation with military equipment, as it is necessary because they are facing "threats". [ Read Full ]

The Revolution is Coming
The death of Mike Brown has set off a revolution for change. People are tired of the injustice of racial inequality, police brutality and inept leadership. Peaceful protestors have had their civil and constitutional rights violated while facing down tanks, amoured SWAT trucks, assault and sniper rifles, dogs, rubber bullets and have been tear gassed on a daily basis. If the President of the United States of America publicly admonishes the police brutality, things must in dire straits. "There is no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests, or to throw protestors in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights. And here, in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground. Put simply, we all need to hold ourselves to a high standard, particularly those of us in positions of authority." When the police threaten to shoot the main stream media, you know shit has spiraled out of control. [ Read Full ]

Judge Sets Precedent: When Pissed Off, Fist Fight
In the judicial system it is not uncommon to have incompetent lawyers and judges who think they are above the law. However, when they are in a courtroom flagrantly breaking the very laws they are sworn to uphold perhaps it is time to rethink who we want to make decisions over people's future. [ Read Full ]

RCMP Internal Study Highlights Corruption
When a private citizen speaks out about the abuse, systemic corruption and overt cover ups by law enforcement they are labelled as "anti police". It bewilders me that people will blindly accept police officers are inherently good and any action taken against a "suspect" was justified. If the officers themselves become criminals, they are regarded as being bad apples among a police force that is honest and good. However, the "bad apples" must be running rampant, as an internal study dubbed Project Sanction was ordered. The RCMP wanted to ascertain if the corruption was an epidemic. [ Read Full ]

Battered Woman Found Not Guilty For Killing Her Husband As He Beat Her
The Cassandra Knott case will be historically relevant and not because of the verdict handed down in the second degree murder trial. The controversy surrounding this case is more about the benefits of cameras in a courtroom than it is about a battered woman who was defending herself against her abusive husband. [ Read Full ]

Filming the police
The police have always been allowed to work under secrecy, rarely been scrutinized or have had to answer for their actions. This shocking video demonstrates why citizens should be recording law enforcement; to hold them accountable and transparent for their actions as they are sworn to serve and protect. [ Read Full ]

Stalkers Need To Have Their Own Registeries
For the last six years I have been stalked and the psychotic asshole can not get it through his pea sized brain to let me go. Apparently, being arrested, breaching his conditions, probation, counselling and all the wonderful feel good politically correct programs that are available did not work for him. Why must he immerse himself in my life and constantly try to see what I am writing on this site? Even though the IP has been BANNED, his compulsion to stay connected, has him using his iPhone to read my rants. [ Read Full ]
