Hey there, time traveller!

Responsible media generally don't report on suicides.
But a tragic event just one week ago has resulted in a front page story today due to the tragic circumstances surrounding the death of Darla Stocks.
She was spending a night at the Centre for Adult Psychology -- not a new experience for her -- but one that her friends didn't think would be her last.
Manitoba's Chief Medical Officer has called an official inquest to examine the facts surrounding the cause and manner of Darla's death.
CAP has been in the community for 12 years. Darla's death marks the first time an individual has died, by his or her own hand, within the facility.
It's a sad situation that we hope will never happen again.
We hope the official inquest will provide the centre with some new direction. We hope that Darla's legacy will be that this type of tragedy never happens again at CAP.
