Federal health minister discusses opioid crisis on Blood Tribe


Chief and council from the Blood Tribe First Nation, along with community members, physicians and police met with federal health minister Jane Philpott Friday morning to address the ongoing opioid crisis in Canada.

The reserve, located 43 kilometres southwest of Lethbridge, has been making strides to combat the dangerous drug in southern Alberta.

“This problem isn’t a Blood Tribe problem,” said Chief Charles Weaslehead. “It’s a national problem.”
