16 year old drug OD in Starbucks washroom - Update

CBC is reporting that "Port Moody police say a 16-year-old girl died Sunday in a Port Moody Starbucks washroom where they also discovered drug paraphernalia and a small amount of drugs." Police haven't said what drugs were involved and whether or not it is tied to the recent surge in fentanyl fatalities but the bizarre response is very disturbing.

Once again extremists are using this tragedy to try and put a lethal injection site into every community under the sun. So does that mean we are going to open up lethal injection sites to minors? Just what are we really promoting here? Why are we rewarding drug dealers that sell tainted drugs? That is insane. It is indeed tragic a 16 year old girl died of a drug overdose. It could have been any of our daughters. No doubt the patrons at Starbucks are traumatized.

We cannot in good conscience endorse harm promotion without supporting treatment and prevention as well as enforcement of current laws with regards to charging drug dealers. Blindly endorsing the drug dealers the way we are is a crime. I have numerous people from different communities that consistently say they dont want a lethal injection site in their community. We need to start arresting the drug dealers. It is as simple as that. Failing to do that and we are part of the problem not part of the solution. Endorsing drug dealer support groups like VANDU is wrong. It's time to wake up and smell the coffee. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Update: CBC is reporting that "The mother of a Coquitlam, BC, teen who died of a suspected overdose in a Starbucks washroom says she tried to get help for her 16-year-old daughter who was struggling with addiction but the public waitlists were too long and she couldn't afford private clinics." Maybe spending tax dollars on rehab is more important than feeding Insite's slush fund.


  1. it makes one wonder, with so much of the Fent. coming in from Communist China that not more emphasis is brought to bear on the goods coming in from that country. Its not like they have a stellar Human Rights record so I'm sure they're quite happy to export drugs which kill our citizens. If shipments from PRC were held up while being examined, we might get the PRC to deal with the export of the drugs.

    Last evenings news was advising there is a new, more powerful drug coming in from China now.

    It doesn't make sense to arrest small time drug dealers, They will simply be replaced by others. If you know one of the drug sources for Fent. is China then you'd expect a country to try to do something about that, given thousands have died from this drug across the country. On the other hand, what are a few thousand Canadian lives when there is so much money to be made from exporting and importing all the "legal" goods and Canada isn't interested in providing resources to inspect goods coming in from overseas.

    1. It bloody well makes sense to arrest the drug dealers that are mixing fentany with heroin and crack or passing off fentany as cocaine. Failing to do so is sheer inanity.

    2. China has a totalitarian government that rules with an iron fist and executes serious opposition or unsanctioned criminal activity. Do you think cargo ships full chemicals needed for meth production are being loaded up and shipped to Mexico without their knowledge? Likewise Fentanyl etc..

      China for years has pursued an agenda designed to grow their power and weaken the west in any way possible. I strongly recommend "The Hundred Year Marathon" - China's Secret Strategy To Replace America As The Global Superpower by Michael Pillsbury, a career "China Hand" as the Brits say.

      Your eyes will be opened. Wide.

    3. They need to go after the business financing these guys, but they never will because they are "pillars of the community" wolves in sheeps clothing.

    4. Since China is knowingly importing crystal meth precursors and since the CIA is doing the same thing in the US, then we are forced to conclude that the CIA and Communist China are indeed on the same side. The wrong one.

  2. I would be happy to contribute some of my taxes for federally funded rehabs. My only stipulation is that there would be no waiting list,one would get admitted immediately.

  3. Bob, that would require the various levels of government to spend real money on rehab. That isnt't going to happen anytime soon. Do remember the community at large had to fund raise for years to have enough money to build a new Children's Hospital in Vancouver. Do you really think the B.C. Lieberals or any federal government is going to spend money on treating drug addiction? Not so much. Not until the cost of not doing so is effecting them personally.
