Vancouver’s safe injection site cuts overdose deaths

ANDRÉ PICARD — PUBLIC HEALTH REPORTER
Vancouver— From Monday’s Globe and Mail
Last updated Monday, Apr. 18, 2011

The number of drug-overdose deaths on Vancouver’s notorious downtown Eastside fell sharply after the opening of a safe injection site, new research shows.

The study, published online Monday in the medical journal The Lancet, shows that fatal overdoses dropped 35 per cent in the vicinity of Insite in the two years after it opened. By comparison, OD deaths dropped only 9 per cent in the rest of Vancouver in that same period.

The plight of the Stoney Nation
Memoirs of a maverick First Nations community judge

By Michael Rappaport
April 22 2011 issue

“Don’t judge a man till you have walked two moons in his moccasins” — goes an old aboriginal saying. At the beginning of his career, retired Justice John Reilly presided over a jurisdiction that included a First Nations community west of Calgary that was plagued with addiction, crime, suicide, violence and corruption; the freshman judge confides he knew nothing of the aboriginals whom he passed sentence on and didn’t care, because he applied the law like a mathematical formula.

The Beaufort Sea is home to bowhead whales and polar bears, great schools of Arctic char and vast numbers of migratory birds.

Guest column: National Chief Shawn Atleo on First Nation concerns

By Shawn Atleo CBC News
Posted: Apr 13, 2011 7:11 PM ET

The reality for First Nations in Canada is that we suffer the poorest socio-economic conditions of all our fellow citizens.

A candidate in this election stated that there are no Third World conditions here.

My response: The rate of tuberculosis among First Nations is 31 times the national average. We suffer infant mortality rates that are three times the Canadian average, an education gap that will take over two decades to close and the realization that our children are more likely to end up in jail than to graduate from high school.

Native in Vancouver’s high schools: new kids, new slang, new divisions
Immigrant and first-generation teens can’t define what it means to be Canadian. They turn to buzzwords like multiculturalism, tolerance and acceptance. Some say it’s a passport or a card. Some say it’s ancestral. Others just don’t know. But while they can’t always express it, they live it.

Seven native teenagers stand under a bus shelter bench. It’s a drizzling Wednesday night on Commercial Drive and East Broadway in East Vancouver. The glaring yellow streetlight illuminates about forty people clustered in loose groups at the Commercial-Broadway Skytrain station entrance.

Private property is a native right – Globe and Mail

Private property is a native right

CALVIN HELIN
From Tuesday’s Globe and Mail
Published Tuesday, Apr. 12, 2011

A great deal of confusion and rancour arises over the question of whether aboriginal Canadians should have individual property rights on reserve lands. Is this a goal to aspire to, or an attempt, as claimed by some indigenous leaders, at further assimilation? On one hand, non-aboriginals tend to see aboriginals as one homogeneous cultural group; on the other, some aboriginals project a universal view of collective property ownership on all groups that’s simply not accurate.
