  1. In my son's case he was originally prescribed oxys to relieve a fairly minor neck injury. But the doc gave him like a three month supply or so and continued to supply him for months after. He didn't seem to care about addiction issues. After he went on methadone the same doc prescribed him antidepressants and sleeping pills. My son didn't overdose: the combination of all the meds just made him toxic. Some of these doctors need to be accountable and follow up with their patients that are using these powerful pain meds imo.
  2. I don't wish to drift too far afield from the OP but I take the prescribing of these types of painkillers to casual users personally. My son became addicted to oxycontin and had to go on methadone. Unfortunately he was over medicated and became toxic with too many prescribed meds in his system and didn't survive.
  3. I thought it was delisted from provincial drug plans some years ago, but maybe Alberta still prescribes it. OxyNEO seems to be a replacement. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/sales-of-opiod-drug-prescriptionsskyrocketing/article26008639/
  4. I believe Oxycontins are off the market now in Canada and have been for awhile. But oxycodone or percocets are still available.
  5. This might clear it up for you. Scroll down to appointments and compare to the site I listed. http://appointments.gc.ca/prflOrg.asp?OrgID=CBC〈=eng
  6. And yet its board of directors are filled with Conservatives...imagine that.
  7. Well, maybe not in the charter but in the Canadian multicultural act it states: (i) preserve and enhance the use of languages other than English and French...
  8. Seems to me no God is the default. Atheists don't have to prove anything.

    My God, are we still talking about this?? Look, I don't think most of us are comfortable with the niqab BUT we are a multicutural nation. We are made richer by other's customs and practices. We should be embracing these people and welcoming them instead of denying their right of expression.
  10. I am disabled, in the lower middle class and feel great. I make around $20,000.00 a year. If you make anywhere near $200,00.00 a year then you are wealthy to me...but I won't hold that against you.
  11. Facial coverings have to be removed for taking citizenship oath. But I remember the huge and dramatic furor over the turban. A non issue then as the niqab is today.
  12. A 2011 Gallup survey reports, "Three in 10 Americans interpret the Bible literally, saying it is the actual word of God."

    At one time a majority of folks thought slavery was okay and wanted to keep gays in the closet too.
