Here in British Columbia alone, it is projected that we’ll have over 1,400 overdose deaths by the end of this year. This problem is only getting worse. To get a fuller picture of what’s happening and just how significant this issue is, the Apologetics Canada team interviewed a coroner on the front lines who’s had enough.
