Cory Monteith's Death, A Reflection on Risk Taken by a Calgary Editor

Enter the editor of The Calgary Herald, Licia Corbella. Ms. Corbella made the decision to write her article "Vancouver's easy drug access may have helped kill Monteith". For those who did not read this article, it is one part diatribe against the safe injection program InSite, one part memory recalling an overheard conversation in Calgary, and one part speculation on what might have happened if Mr. Monteith had been in some other city. While writing is a creative art form used to inform and encourage discussion, one cannot believe that Ms. Corbella would have expected the type of backlash her own simple decision brought upon her head. Social media fervor tumbled out to greet her article with charges that she was insane, ignorant, a typical redneck from Alberta, idiotic... she should be fired immediately for her badly written, poorly researched, horrible opinion. In essence, her risk failed to gain the positive support writers generally hope they will receive.
