By Amy Smart THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER- Organizers of a Vancouver compassion club say they will continue to distribute tested cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine despite a rejection from Health Canada, calling it the only way to save lives in the face of a toxic drug supply. Eris Nyx, co-founder of the Drug User Liberation Front, said regulating the illicit supply is the answer to stopping drug toxicity deaths, which have topped 10,000 in British Columbia since the province declared a public health emergency more than six years ago. “These people are our friends, our community members, people we love, people we care about very deeply and we’re losing them every day. And the driving cause of these deaths is the deregulated and unpredictable illicit drug market,” Nyx said Wednesday. Nyx
