Police in Winnipeg say three people who died of a drug overdose may be the latest victims of a rise in the use of fentanyl. Police found the bodies of one man and two women inside a home in the city's northwest early this morning, along with a white powder. Alex Forrest, head of the city's firefighter union, says Winnipeg is facing a fentanyl crisis. (Police say it will take a few weeks for lab results to confirm whether the white powder was fentanyl or its much-more powerful cousin, carfentanil (car-FENT'-ah-nihl).)
