A deadly start to July has prompted police and community groups to emphasize the need for more of a medication that can save those experiencing opioid overdoses.
On Thursday, the Regina Police Service held a press conference to discuss the ongoing issues of drug use in the community. It said since July 1, six people in Regina died from drug overdoses.
The service encourages people in the community to have Naloxone, or Narcan, kits, on hand, hoping the more kits available will mean less overdoses. The drug counteracts the effects of overdoses.
Tania Klyne experienced the importance of Naloxone first-hand one night, when her neighbor overdosed.
[I] found out that he had overdosed on an opioid, probably fentanyl,” Klyne said. “Someone was already on the phone with 9-1-1. I explained that I had Narcan training and that I would be administering Narcan because he was not responsive.
Klyne said she gave the man two doses of Narcan. It wasn’t until EMS arrived and they also gave him the medication that the man woke up.
You could be walking down the street and someone could be overdosing,” Klyne said “It’s reality here in our society.
Klyne is a volunteer with Queen City Patrol. The group patrols neighbourhoods to collect and safely dispose of used syringes. The patrol started in November of 2019, and since then has collected more than 17,000 needles.
Wade Lecaine, a co-founder of the patrol, lost his best friend to a drug overdose and said if someone had Naloxone there, she would have survived.
“The night she passed away, naloxone wasn’t there,” Wade Lecaine said. “That was her third over dose and it was the only time they didn’t have naloxone in the house.
The AIDS Programs South Saskatchewan provides free naloxone kits as well as training to administer the medication. People do not have to give their name to get a kit, they just need to participate in a short anonymous survey.
The non-profit organization said in 2019, it gave out 357 kits. Meanwhile, from January to June of 2020, its already handed out 873 kits. It believes more people are wanting naloxone kits, because if someone is overdosing from fentanyl, they might need more than one dose of Naloxone to wake up.
“Because fentanyl is so potent, it can take up to eight shots of naloxone to reverse it,” Sophie Pitman of AIDS Programs South Saskatchewan said. “Unfortunately these kits come with about two or three shots.

Many farmers in Saskatchewan have seen improved soil moisture conditions after rain fell last week.
From June 23 to 29, moisture conditions improved particularly well in the province’s southern and west-central regions as those areas received high amounts of rainfall, according to the Saskatchewan crop report.
The report, released Friday, said the majority of crops in Saskatchewan are in fair to excellent condition.
However, it said some of the northern parts of the province have reported localized flooding and standing water in fields.
According to the report, 67 per cent of fall cereals, 72 per cent of spring cereals, 65 per cent of oilseed crops and 81 per cent of pulse crops are at normal stages of development for this time of year. The numbers represent the province-wide average.
It said rainfall in the province ranged from trace amounts to 75 mm in the Macklin area.
On average, cropland topsoil moisture has been rated as three per cent surplus, 77 per cent adequate, 19 per cent short and one per cent very short.
Hay and pasture land topsoil moisture is rated as one per cent surplus, 67 per cent adequate, 27 per cent short and five per cent very short, the report said.
According to the report, farmers have started to begin haying.
It said livestock producers have cut one per cent of the hay crop, and have baled or put into silage one per cent.
Eight per cent of hay has been rated as excellent, 59 per cent as good, 24 per cent as fair and nine per cent poor.
The report said farmers hope the recent rain will improve crop and future pasture growth, especially in the areas that have received little rain.
It said flooding, mostly in the northern regions, contributed to crop damage this week, while dry conditions contributed to damage largely in the southern and east-central regions.
Wind, insects, animal feeding, and crop disease also contributed to damage.

The CEO of the Regina International Airport says the organization may be out of money by September or early October as it grapples with low travel demand.
James Bogusz, the CEO of the airport, said Friday that the low demand and route cancellations have massive ramifications for its bottom line.
“Right now we’re going to be out of money coming into September, and possibly into early October, depending on where our bills falls,” Bogusz said
Air Canada suspending 4 Sask. routes indefinitely
Air Canada ending service to 8 cities, suspending 30 regional routes
“It’s incredibly concerning because we have to raise money to pay our power bill and our staff, and all of the other things that make the airport function,” he said.

Air Canada announced earlier this week it’s suspending four routes in Saskatchewan indefinitely. The routes being suspended include Regina-Winnipeg, Regina-Saskatoon, Regina-Ottawa and Saskatoon-Ottawa.
Bogusz said the Ottawa route is fairly popular in the summer and the Winnipeg route operated daily. But without many customers flying, he said he isn’t surprised the routes were suspended.
He said Regina’s flight volumes in June have been five percent of what it normally sees.
“It’s better than it was in April and May, but it’s a far cry from where we were before COVID-19,” he said.
Bogusz said he doesn’t expect people to fly in large numbers again until they feel comfortable traveling. As well, travel restrictions would have to be lifted, he added.
He said he hopes airlines re-consider their route suspensions when travel re-bounds.
As well, the airport is open for government support, whether that’s through grants or loans, to help deal with the revenue losses, he added.

Two people are dead and 15 others are injured following a crash on Highway 2, just east of Fannystelle, Man., on Thursday.
According to RCMP, the crash took place around 11:50 a.m., when seven vehicles were stopped in the eastbound lane at a construction zone, waiting for the direction to be able to drive through.
Mounties said a semi-truck with a trailer, driving eastbound, didn’t stop and hit the vehicles from behind. Police note there were eight vehicles involved in total: two semis with trailers, five passenger vehicles, and a motorcycle.
Two people, a seven-year-old girl from Winnipeg and a 61-year-old man from the R.M. of St. Andrews, were pronounced dead at the scene, and 15 other people were hurt in the crash. The seven-year-old was in one of the passenger vehicles and the 61-year-old was on the motorcycle.
RCMP said the vehicle that the seven-year-old girl was in was the first vehicle hit by the semi.
Of the 15 people who were hurt, six were taken to hospital, including two adults, two children under the age of 16, and two kids under the age of three.
One of the adults and the two kids under the age of three have been released. A 22-year-old woman, a 14-year-old girl, and a 10-year-old girl are still in hospital with serious injuries.
The driver of the semi-truck, a 56-year-old Saskatchewan man, was arrested and faces seven charges, including two counts of dangerous operation of a conveyance causing death, two counts of criminal negligence causing death, and three counts of dangerous operation of a conveyance causing bodily harm. He is in custody.

Corp. Julie Courchaine said it is not known yet why the driver didnt stop.
Theyre still investigating. It is going to take some time. They were out until late in the evening yesterday, doing measurement and that formal investigation, said Courchaine.

None of the charges have been tested in court.
Carman RCMP, the criminal collision investigation team, a forensic collision reconstructionist, and a provincial motor carrier enforcement officer are investigating.
Courchaine said this was a tragic incident and impacts a lot of people.
Obviously this is a very tragic and traumatic incident for everyone involved. I know we have victim services available as well as other supports. Obviously, if someone is in need, please let us know and we can direct you the right way, because this is something that is very difficult to deal with, said Courchaine.
