Good for you Dr. Day

Dr. Brian Day, President of The Canadian Medical Association, speaks out on the government's dismissal of the positive role harm-reduction programs can play in society and questions why the federal government seems to be opposed to safe injection sites in British Columbia, but is willing to consider them in Quebec.

Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
