The Big Story


I don't think <Speech_Male> there's any <Speech_Male> other way you can get <Speech_Male> past that. <Speech_Male> If things don't <Speech_Male> and let's be <Speech_Male> quite real. <Speech_Male> You know no matter what happens. <Speech_Male> People <Speech_Male> are going to continue to die. <Speech_Male> WE ARE PART <Speech_Male> OF <Speech_Male> A. <Speech_Male> North American <Speech_Male> drug <Speech_Male> market <Speech_Male> where Feno <Speech_Male> has <Speech_Male> permeated <Speech_Male> every corner <Speech_Male> of the continent <Speech_Male> where <Speech_Male> you're starting to see <Speech_Male> massive overdoses <Speech_Male> in Mexico from <Speech_Male> Feno, where you're seeing <Speech_Male> a meth crisis <Speech_Male> that it that <Speech_Male> is absolutely <Speech_Male> ravaging a lot <Speech_Male> of communities, especially <Speech_Male> in the American <Speech_Male> northwest <Speech_Male> <hes> where you're seeing, <Speech_Male> people <Speech_Male> use drugs <Speech_Male> that they could never <Speech_Male> imagine would include <Speech_Male> Fendt no and <Speech_Male> dying at <Speech_Male> you know people <Speech_Male> who are not long-term drug <Speech_Male> users people who who <Speech_Male> go to a wedding <Speech_Male> offer a limit of cocaine. <Speech_Male> Use it <Speech_Male> and dive. Offend <Speech_Male> overdose that night <Speech_Male> you know you're talking <Speech_Male> about a problem that <Speech_Male> is pervasive. <Speech_Male> That is <Speech_Male> really <Speech_Male> pernicious, and that is. <Speech_Male> That is going to be really hard <Speech_Male> to fight. <Speech_Male> But you can't <Speech_Male> fight with two hands tied behind <Speech_Male> your back. You <Speech_Male> can't fight that <Speech_Male> while you're fighting. <Speech_Male> An unrelated war <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> we've long established <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> Meyer. You <Speech_Male> know this first <Speech_Male> step is <Speech_Male> the bare minimum necessary <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> avert the number <Speech_Male> of deaths that we could <Speech_Male> see, and we could see <Speech_Male> this year. Be <Speech_Male> The worst <Speech_Male> year of all time <Speech_Male> for drug overdoses in <Speech_Male> this country that is <Speech_Male> on the table, <Speech_Male> and if that happens, <Speech_Male> you know <Speech_Male> there's going to need to <Speech_Male> be some real real <Speech_Male> reckoning <Speech_Male> with what this government <Speech_Male> has allowed to happen <Speech_Male> because you <Speech_Male> know for all this government's <Speech_Male> great rhetoric <Speech_Male> and. And I'm talking mostly about the federal <Speech_Male> government of provincial <Speech_Male> governments have <Speech_Male> Olaudah responsibility <Speech_Male> to bear as well <Speech_Male> especially governments <Speech_Male> like Jason Kenny's Alberta <Speech_Male> which has repeatedly <Speech_Male> fought <Speech_Male> safe consumption sites, <Speech_Male> which is again, <Speech_Male> even even the barest <Speech_Male> of minimum <Speech_Male> required <Speech_Male> to fight this pandemic, <Speech_Male> but you know I <Speech_Male> think they're going to have to be a <Speech_Male> reckoning with the government <Speech_Male> that has consistently <Speech_Male> recognized <Speech_Male> how bad the problem <Speech_Male> is has <Speech_Male> consistently said <Speech_Male> it wants to do something <Speech_Male> and has consistently <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> been woefully <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> inadequate <Speech_Male> when it comes <Speech_Male> to actually taking <Speech_Male> the measures that everyone <Speech_Music_Male> is telling them as <Speech_Music_Male> are necessary <Speech_Music_Female> to fight <SpeakerChange> against this. <Speech_Female> Seems <Speech_Female> like a great place to <Speech_Female> leave it.
