While I have seen so many tributes and messages of support for the parents — please remember you, brother or sister, you are in our thoughts, too.
Joelle Tomlinson is the morning show host for CTV Morning Live in Calgary. Originally from Saskatchewan, she has a strong love for sports, running, cycling, reading, writing and a good cup of java. You can find her hosting the morning show in the early hours of the morning, running her dog on the trails of Calgary in the afternoon, or escaping to her favourite place in the world (the Rockies) on the weekend.
Fentanyl stole from me, from my family and from countless others across Canada. I've had items stolen from me before. In high school, someone broke into my locker and took my iPod. I remember my mom telling me, "Life goes on." Last year, someone stole funds from my bank account. Life goes on. Sometimes, though, it doesn't. On February 28, 2015, my older brother took what he thought was an Oxycontin tablet while he was out partying. He went home, he went to bed and he never woke up.
