Here's Tara Conner, former Miss USA talking about her 10 years of recovery.

What is not included but she shared this past week was what happened eight and a half years into her recovery. Sober yes. Happy, no. She was feeling worse than ever. Tara hit an emotional wall ...the reminder that "just being sober" isn't enough. There is more to recovery than the number of years not using. She had to dig deep, look beyond what she had learned so far to get to another level of life and joy.

Check out her TEDx talk; it's a beginning worth hearing.

Had an interesting conversation with a few people this evening. While on patrol, I was approached by a small group who were basically wondering if the news and media were 'sensationalising' the dangers of Fentanyl in Canada. First off, great question gang! Secondly, thanks for asking it!! Never feel you can't approach a police officer if you have a question you think we could answer for you. Even if we don't have the answer, we can help you find out! Now, to the answer. Do I think the media is sensationalising the Fentanyl epidemic in Canada? NOT AT ALL!! I wish they talked about it more everyday! Fentanyl is a powerful prescription painkiller about 100 X more potent than morphine. 2 milligrams of pure fentanyl (the size of about 4 grains of salt) is enough to kill the average adult. Put into perspective, here is a visual of the dose of Heroin, Fentanyl and Carfentanyl needed to kill an average adult. *** PARENTAL ADVISORY *** PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING *** For those that follow our page, you are accustomed to a very G rated experience.
