Sadly, not all of what we learn is good news... during my idea for this cartoon -let's dispel 'once and for all 'cartoon- at least in my mind- I learned of another button killing kids.
Lithium buttons and it's a terrible way to die.
If not the choking then what the battery can do to a child's inside is horrifying. Watch the simple video that shows us. I did not occur to me. I Imagine part of the problem is a little one not being able to vocalize they had swallowed a battery.
So much so Health Canada did have a warning about them and possible death, still they are everywhere. Did you know? Please be honest.
I would like to point out and ask all of you to think about:
How much has the Current Canadian government (OR any for that matter) spent on Educating the public about Lithium batteries and deadly consequences with children ***Especially -compared to what they have in fact spent smearing medical Cannabis?
Hmmmmmm? If I had to guess I would say TOO MUCH on one and
NOT enough on the one that matters!
"Worried about the children" ...please, it's just another excuse they use for their own benefit to manipulate us until they can use something for theirs best interest $$$.
If I a wrong this would be the perfect example to prove me wrong. Go ahead.
When I started to draw about buttons- the kind we wear and are everywhere- I had no idea about batteries, what they did and HOW common it is.
Battery buttons will never be banned or the other kind. It is ALL about EDUCATION.
As with cannabis - as with EVERYTHING.
Spending money and resources on educating our young should be our priority - always.
I am so TIRED of the bullshit represented by Rona Ambrose and Stephen Harper and the damage they have done to this country- If you are not - you are not paying attention.
I don't know 'who' will make it better but I am voting for Justin Treadeau.
I AM voting. IF you don't please don't speak to me of such issues.
Bullshit 'voting does not matter'- get out there & make it matter - if you can vote and don't then you are part of the problem.
There are people around the world that would kill and DO for such an opportunity.
Today - PLEASE, educate ONE person who has little ones on the true dangers of button battery cells!
