Peters then proceeded to reduce Canada's heritage minister, the Honourable Mélanie Joly, to being "hot." The show went on, but anger over Peters has continued to build as have the usual defenders crying about how it was just a joke. So let's unpack that.

As a pain psychologist, I share patients' concerns about limiting opioids without providing access to alternatives. Ethical pain care should emphasize first the programs and initiatives that empower individuals to best control their own pain.
