Participating Talent For 2021 GRAMMY Nominations Announced: Dua Lipa, Sharon Osbourne, Imogen Heap And More. The civic and social unrest deserves to be addressed, and we always encourage artists to voice their opinions, so I expect we'll see messages both from the artists' side

The Regina Police Service released a bold and unusual statement late Monday afternoon.

It was one made in the face of a seldom-discussed tragedy going on under our very noses.

It was one that should cause all of us to take a long, hard look in the mirror.

“People are dying in our city from drug overdoses,” the release frankly stated. “They’re not strangers; they are someone’s child, spouse, sibling, or parent. We can all play a role in preventing these needless fatal events.”

Recording Academy Halts ‘Grammy Nominees’ CD Series After 26 Years

  Recording Academy Halts ‘Grammy Nominees’ CD Series After 26 Years The Recording Academy has called a halt to its annual Grammy Nominees CD series. The franchise was a major hit for many years, but has faltered in recent years as CD sales have dwindled. “It ended up costing us quite a bit of money to do it and it was not selling [in big numbers anymore]” Harvey Mason Jr., the Recording Academy’s chair and interim president/CEO, told Billboard. Fifteen volumes in the annual series, which was produced by Leslie Lewis, made the top 10 on the Billboard 200. Two volumes—in 2013 and 2014—climbed as high as No. 2.

See the fans' reactions . And their fans have been flexing their favorite artists' newest credentials by tweeting, "Why? do i look like a fan of an artist who got two number 1's on the billboard this year, released multiple best selling albums and got nominated for a grammy ?"

What motivated the startlingly blunt assessment was the RPS sending out staff to four overdose drug deaths Monday:

— “At 7:03 a.m., police responded to the 1000 block of Garnet Street for a deceased 30 year-old male.”

— “At 9:26 a.m., police responded to the 1000 block of Edgar Street for a deceased 32 year-old male.”

— “At 9:45 a.m., police attended to the 800 block of Athol Street for a deceased 36 year-old male.”

— “This afternoon, there was a fourth apparent overdose involving an adult male in the 1200 block of Rae Street.”

Four dead men — three of them dead before most of us had our morning coffee break where we pondered our woeful lot because we are working from our warm homes during this pandemic.

On most days, an OD death or two would go unnoticed. People see the location and move on.

Grammy Nominations: Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, Meryl Streep & Rachel Maddow Among Industry Figures Vying For Trophies

  Grammy Nominations: Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, Meryl Streep & Rachel Maddow Among Industry Figures Vying For Trophies While Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and others dominated the Grammy Awards nominations announced today, a number of names more associated with the film and TV worlds also made the cut. Among those vying for statuettes on Music’s Biggest Night next year are Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, Meryl Streep, Rachel Maddow, Jeopardy! GOAT Ken Jennings and Spike Jonze. Five folks who are familiar to TV audiences are up for Best Comedy Album this year: Seinfeld (23 Hours to Kill), Haddish (Black Mitzvah), Patton Oswalt (I Love Everything), Jim Gaffigan (The Pale Tourist) and Bill Burr (Paper Tiger).

To be eligible for the 2021 awards, albums and songs must have been released between Sept. For the always closely watched best new artist, one of the awards’ big four categories, nominees are no longer restricted by having previously released a specific number of albums.

But maybe four deaths in one city in one day will be a  wakeup call — a reminder that, as Regina police noted, we are talking about someone’s child, parent or sibling. We are talking about someone being dead who shouldn’t be.

It is a good time to pause and maybe reflect on 2020 — to take a long, hard look at what it’s doing to us and why it might be turning us into something we don’t want to be.

A story last month by the StarPhoenix’s Zak Vescera noted that, at that point, Saskatchewan had already seen nearly 300 overdose deaths in 2020 — 122 confirmed overdose fatalities from the start of the year until Oct. 26 according to the Saskatchewan Coroners Service and another 174 suspected deaths. There have been 93 suspected overdose deaths in Regina — 16 in November, alone.

As we watch the daily COVID-19 death count in Saskatchewan (37 out of 6,708 cases, as of Monday), we seem to be missing that the most under-reported story of 2020 might be the overdose crisis.

Worse, issues of mental health and drug addiction have sometimes been weaponized by those arguing against the economic and social cost of lockdowns. If your newfound interests in overdoses doesn’t expend much beyond political gaslighting, are you any better than whose who argue only a small percentage are dying of COVID-19 and those who die are mostly elderly nursing home residents, anyway?

Come on, people. Be better.

Yes, 2020 has been bad, but that’s no excuse to be unkind to those worse off than you.

In fact, let’s take our lead from the Regina Police Service which displayed true compassion separate from today’s frustrations and politics.

While announcing that the deaths appear unrelated, the RPS statement stressed police believe fentanyl is involved and urged people to “connect with health resources.”

The statement urged all to learn the signs of an opioid overdose including difficulty walking, talking and staying awake, blue lips or nails, pinpoint pupils, clammy skin, dizziness, confusion, weak breathing, choking, gurgling and snoring noises and extreme drowsiness including the inability to to wake up even when shaken.

It stressed immediately calling 9-1-1 and noted the Good Samaritan Overdose Act guards against possession criminal charges for those in distress or trying to provide aid. It further stressed the need to be familiar with Naloxone kits.

In short, it did what we all need to do more of in 2020: Recognize overdoses as a serious issue and be a bit kinder to each other.
