Stepson of British Columbia's agriculture minister dies of overdose

Lana Popham posted on her Facebook Nov. 17: "It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our very own Dan Sealey at the age of 23. Those who were lucky enough to know him will remember the funny, caring, smart, talented and special person that he was but may not know about the struggles he faced over the past few years with mental health and addiction. He was taken from us far too soon by accidental overdose before he got to fulfill his dream of being a Physics teacher."

VICTORIA - British Columbia's agriculture minister says her stepson has died of an accidental drug overdose.

Lana Popham posted about Dan Sealey's death on Facebook.

She says her partner's 23-year-old son was caring and smart, and some who knew him may not have realized he struggled with addiction and mental health issues.

Popham encouraged people to donate to an online fundraiser in Sealey's honour instead of sending flowers.

As of Sunday morning, the fundraiser intended to help people with addictions had raised more than $6,000.
