Surge in Canadian and U.S. overdoses this week!

Dear readers:

Image result for junkie clipartIt's still a bit early to tell what, if any connection exists between overdoses and  deaths on both sides of the border these last few days, but in yet another sign that opioid crisis is only worsening, addictions specialists in British Columbia are reporting that there have been dozens of overdoses in Vancouver in recent days while officials in Cincinnati report as many as 72 overdoses.
 Members of the Vancouver supervised injection site 'Insite' say there were 26 overdoses at their facility between Tuesday and Thursday morning. That compares to the five or six overdoses they see on a typical day.
Even seasoned support workers are stunned over what has occurred this week
The cops suspect a new and more potent form of junk is responsible, but so far nobody has a clue as to what, who or where!

Hoping to boost recruiting of Muslim women, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is allowing its officers to wear hijabs as part of their uniforms, the government said Tuesday.

"The commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police recently approved this addition to the uniform," Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale's spokesman Scott Bardsley told AFP.

"This is intended to better reflect the diversity in our communities and encourage more Muslim women to consider the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a career option," he said.

Oops! James Corden did it again, sharing his Carpool Karaoke commute with Britney Spears on Thursday's edition of The Late Late Show.

As they drove through L.A. byways with the CBS host at the wheel, they doubled up for Spears' hit songs including SuperstarMake MeToxic and Baby One More Time (the latter performed in matching schoolgirl garb).

And, of course, there was one more signature Spears tune.

"You know your song, Oops! ... I Did It Again?" asked Corden, leading up to it. "What's that about? What's it REALLY about?"

"I don't know," Spears demurely replied innocently. "I think it's just a song."

"Because every time I order at Domino's," said Corden, "I think, Oops! I did it again!"
