I usually do not drop a comment, however after reading a ton of responses on Cory
Monteiths Vancouver Drug History – He Hung Out With The Wrong Crowd – Hollywood Life.

I do have some questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be
simply me or do some of these remarks look as if they are
coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social
sites, I’d like to follow you. Would you make a list of all of your public
pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

It seems like he was trying to avoid getting sucked in. If what he told the Project Limelight people about going hiking is true, he moved over from Victoria to Vancouver, checked in at the hotel, and then went back to the island to go hiking for several days. It’s not a sequence that makes sense — unless maybe he was trying to avoid temptation, get away from the trap.

It’s very true the people he was with that night knew on his demons especially there, they knew he was only just out of rehab and knew of the temptations he faced yet where were they? They let Cory a lovely person, THEIR friend down why didn’t one of them go back with him on his last night…my heart goes out to Leah & Cory’s family it shouldn’t have happened its a disease that he had no control over and he just couldn’t win, not for the want of trying…god bless you Cory another bright light has gone out xxx

Friends? No, these weren’t friends. Friends have your back, they don’t get someone who’s struggling to party with them. More like wannabes who liked partying with a star.

LOL obviously the ‘insider’ who speaks of the area near the hotel has NEVER been there. The Fairmont is one of the most exclusive hotels, in one of the highest end areas of Vancouver (trendy, expensive shops, restaurants – no open drug markets (LMAO) – the comment is so stupid you can’t help but laugh), he was in the East End because this is where the charity he supports (Project Limelight) is located. At least if you’re gonna print something – pleeeeeease check your facts. OMG.
Poor Cory had a disease, and it was a devastating loss to all who loved him. RIP Cory, you were such a bright light.

No kidding. This article is so full of nonsense that it’s comical.

By the way…the “source” is an idiot no matter what county thy are from. No respecting dealer would be targeting Mr. Monethieth given who he is and the potential heat they’d bring down from the cops.

People like to say “why didn’t Lea and people around him protect him from drug use?”. It goes back to “how do you protect a man from himself?”. So sad.

Cory was at East of Main because that’s the center of Project Limelight the organization he supports with Maureen Webb, the person he was meeting with. It’s probably in that area because of the rent, availability to the kids it’s trying to serve, don’t know. Agree it’s a temptation.

East of Main is nOT in a bad area at all but a v. trendy area on Main Street. His hotel is also in a v. expensive part of Vancouver. Check your geography people.

Cory had no friends in Vancouver – only worthless leeches who wanted to use him! No true friend would have a welcome home party for a friend trying to get clean and invite drug dealers! No decent club owner would send a car to pick up someone who’s just out of rehab or who has an addiction! Drug dealers are murdering parasites who should be killed but Cory had probably known them for years and thought they were friends so their ridicule mattered to him but these dealers should be ashamed! They won’t be of course, because no drug dealer has a conscience or morals or deserves to live! Why aren’t the police charging these people or releasing names? The public needs to know who these vermin are so they can be avoided!

You are right about that, Caro. Drug dealers are murderers posed as friends. It’s disgusting. They will never have a conscious. That’s how they earn their bread and butter hooking people into the dark world of drugs and keeping them there. It’s so twisted and sick. What a crying shame that Cory had lost sight of his truth and bought the garbage these ‘friends’ (and I use the word loosely), sold him hook. line, and sinker. It’s sad that their opinion of him mattered more to him than anyone else’s. It is a tragedy and one that affects 1000’s of people, not just celebrities.

For those of you blaming the police, it ISN’T their fault! Canada – particularly Vancouver has an open society regarding drugs – it’s the ONLY place I know of in North America where there’s a clinic you can go to & get drugs & use! The idea is if you take the “bad” part of doing it away then maybe ppl will stop.
Cory should not have been in this city – it’s the WORSE possible place for him to be – ESPECIALLY ALONE!
I have no idea his relationship w Lea but she PROB knew him as good as anyone — why was he alone in Vancouver???

He wasn’t alone. He met up with a group of his ‘friends,’ Lea was in Cabo San Lucas on holiday with her friends. I don’t think she kept him on a tether and tried to have faith that he knew what he was doing and that he was clean and wasn’t going to do drugs again. It’s all about denial. Many people that are in love or love an addict are in denial. They want to believe the best and live in a false reality.

As much as this saddens me, though I don’t even know Cory personally, it also makes me wonder why he went rehab for just 30 days. He had struggled half of his life against substance abuse. I also wonder he had follow up treatment after his stint. It’s really bad when an addict got a detox but then relapsed. It’s even more lethal! Believe it or not, we are also influenced by the environment around us. And in an addict’s case? It’s even worse for them. Addicts are SLUGS sick, lonely, unable, guilt-ridden and shamefilled that they also need SLUGS sobriety, love, unity, growth and spirituality. It’s SLUGSociety’s campaign. It came as a shock to many (his death) but to many others it’s not a shock considering thw situation he was in. May God bless his loved ones and may he rest in peace.

@Angel33 Actually…Angel33 Vancouver DOES NOT have an open society regarding drugs. They DO, however have a Safe Needle Injection Site where users are allowed to inject but only as a step in getting clean (you cannot go cold-turkey – it will kill you), they are put on a very strict, medically monitored program and education program to get them clean, off the street and employed. Does YOUR city offer this, or do they just sweep drug use under the rug?? Believing everything you read, (Vancouver was a bad place for him because his friends invited drug dealers to parties) or that Cory was so weak minded he couldn’t say no (neither which are believed to be true – in fact Mr. Monteith was often reported as having tremendous will), obviously the rehab facility he came out of recently – did not do it’s job – they should have known whether he was at risk for re-lapse. In the end, he died tragically, senselessly and the world lost a beautiful soul – but don’t blame Vancouver – we Vancouverites, live here, work here, don’t do or deal drugs, and we don’t care for those who’ve never even visited the city, trashing it. So please – be nice – Thanks.

Wrong. You cant GET drugs at insite.. you can only inject while under the supervision of a nurse. Where/how you get drugs is your own deal and insite has nothing to do with the process. It’s sole purpose is to prevent OD deaths, which is has, hundreds of times.

Oh you friends of Cory if you knew he was hook on herion and stood around and did nothing to help there friend. Should be ashamed of yourself and watch your friend kill himself with this terrible drug and say what a great guy he was. He wasn’t great guy or a role model he was a drug user and he paid the highest price and that’s his life.With friends like you people who needs enemies.

The cops should be fired for not doing their job, come on, people selling drugs out in the open? The cops are there for what? They are not doing their job that they are paid for.

Everyone knows port cities are known for being areas of high drug volume. Vancouver is known for its Pot and it has an open idea of drug use (namely clinics that allow users to get high with clean needles). The probably with drugs and drug dealers is a complicated one that will not just go away with some cops arresting a few dealers. Most of the people the cops do arrest are just underlings to a bigger boss who hides in the seedy dark.

I’d watch out America, after some states have voted to legalizing pot…it’s a slippery slope…

LMAO @Trish, let me guess, you’ve never left your state right? I bet you’ve never even been to Vancouver, I mean how could you – and still spout garbage like that? Vancouver is internationally recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Yes, there are drugs, in fact, there are drugs in your neck of the woods too – it is a festering plague which no one can avoid. With regard to the legalization of pot I applaud those states who did and wish our own province had taken the same step. Think about it for one moment: Legalization means control. Control of the growth, distribution and purity. The government will tax it, throwing money back into communities. Legalizing will eliminate the dangerous element of drug dealers. (Think alcohol and tobacco dear – its the same thing). The end result is a much safer, richer state without the threat of gangs who compete for territory. If someone can legally acquire pot (like alcohol or tobacco) why… would they go to a dealer??? It just makes common sense for a government to legalize, regulate and control substances such as pot, alcohol and tobacco – if you don’t agree – I would suggest you wipe your eyes and spit the sand out of your mouth.
