Major news story somehow kept out of the media

Post by Duke Atriedes »

So 7 people died one evening in the little town of Duncan. I believe it was August 6th. One of the victims was my cousin of 33, who I admit hadn't connected with for 10 years.

What happened was a bad batch of fentanyl. My cousin was 1 of 3 that died that night in a home in Duncan. 4 others died that night across the small town.

I'm getting the news of it peace meal from my mother who is with my aunt.

I find it curious that this has been kept from the news media.

Also surprising to me is the MS 13 angle of it. Wonder if anyone has a handle on MS 13 in Canada. It seems my cousin was dating an MS 13 member. While MS 13 wasn't the factor in her death, it was a factor for her being in the wrong place with the wrong people. Found a machete in their home, and in talking to close friends, learned this MS 13 member, who already served time for murder, was very possessive of my cousin, and kept her on a short leash.

i know of more people who have died of overdoses during this "pandemic" than people who have died from The Rona. Actually, I know none that have died from COVID.

Me too Connie. I know of 1 heart disease death, and 3 over dose deaths in my orbit. Not a single COVID death. Isn't China behind fentanyl?

Interesting for Canada. Not the case in the USA. I think over dose deaths are usually 80,000 per year. But wow.

I feel sorry for the folks who run Corona breweries, they are somewhat limited in how they can promote the product ...

Drink Corona, it's nothing to sneeze at.

(nope)

Have a Corona and pass them around.

(nope)

Corona, it's the best thing ever from Mexico

(marginal)

Corona, please, we've got ten warehouses full of this stuff -- IT'S NOT THE VIRUS.

(too desperate)

Corona, our taste is unmasked.

(okay)

:p Funny suggestions there gentlemen.

For those in CCCPedmonton.......

Catch Corona at the LRT!
(Wait, that ain’t right.)
We meant to say, catch the LRT at Corona!
Free case of Las Mas Fina if you make it to the end of the line.

Excellent idea using the Corona underground train station. Corona could buy all the advertising there and set up free tasting tables for 18+. Brilliant.

Embrace Corona for nothing only at Corona Station. *camera shows large crowd of happy people holding up bottles declaring they all have Corona and they love it*

With the few hot days we had this summer it could have been a big hit. Anyone not feeling well thereafter could just take the train to the University hospital station!

Corona Mas Finas.....an exceptional beer for these exceptional times.

Perhaps Peter and I can do an On the Road movie revival! I don’t know who will be Bob Hope or Bing Crosby from us two. :)) :D
As Peter is in BC and I in AB.....

Despite all the smoke and the haze
As we are going before it starts snowing ,
Delicious pastries we will procure
Although I doubt we’ll run into a descendant of Dorothy Lamour!”
