That is the word from The Calgary Herald (Meghan Potkins/January 12) which said the 8 a.m. called played out with police attending and surrounding the Parkhill home. According to the newspaper, initial information indicates a physical confrontation ensued between the home owner, who may have taken a heroin overdose, and the 3 practitioners. One of the medics apparently broke his finger in the melee. Details as to why this occurred have not yet been released.
