Hamilton: Barton jail inmates are overdosing: Who’s watching?
Ontario does not track overdose deaths in jail

Hamilton Spectator - The province is not tracking how many inmates are overdosing in jails across Ontario.

The government has no central database of this information, despite drugs being such a concern that the regional coroner is planning an inquest that will examine the overdose deaths of four inmates at the Barton Street jail. More...


What can I do if I or someone I know is experiencing abuse?

Why Medical Marijuana Is Not a Legal Drug in Canada

Huffington Post - Last month, the Globe and Mail ran an editorial questioning whether Health Canada's oversight of medical marijuana had "gone to pot". The piece outlines the history of medical marijuana legislation in Canada, the potential for profiteering by licensed producers, and takes Health Canada to task for the way they have handled the licensing process as well as for the difficulty the government agency seems to be having in regulating medical marijuana. The editorial would have been pretty much spot-on if it wasn't for a glaring error in the opening sentence: "Medical marijuana is a legal drug in Canada." It isn't. More...

Binge drinker? It's linked to low intelligence


independent.co.uk - Researchers have linked binge drinking to low intelligence.

Scientists at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm analysed data from 49,321 Swedish men born between 1949-1951, who had been conscripted in the army between 1969-1971.

After examining IQ tests from their conscriptions and data on their total alcohol use, they found that lower results in IQ tests were associated with higher consumption of alcohol. More...

Love may be the cure for drunkenness
Medical News Today - Beyoncé sang that she was "Drunk in Love," but a new study suggests that "Sober in Love" might be more scientifically apt. Researchers at the University of Sydney and the University of Regensburg in Australia have found that oxytocin - popularly known as "the love hormone," due to its increased production in our brains during acts of intimacy - may have a sobering effect against alcohol.

1. First off, how did you get into radio? What attracted you to the medium?

I was a little kid who had CHUM on my radio all day and under my pillow at night growing up! All of my heroes were deejays on CHUM, and I was determined I was going to be one! Never did work at CHUM Toronto, although I was with the company off and on over 20 years in other Canadian markets. I got into radio at the University of Waterloo and the rest is history, I guess.
