B.C. woman looks for spot to show overdose display blessed by Pope

The Free Press, April 30, 2019

Judith Conway created a large display representing people who have died from opioid overdoses.

Judith Conway travelled from her home on Vancouver Island, across the world, to visit his Holiness Pope Francis in March and receive a blessing on a carefully folded series of flags and ribbons.

On each flag and ribbon is a name, and along with them are 4,000 strands of yarn which each represent someone who died of an opioid overdose in Canada.
