Euthanasia in Canada

On 2015-02-06 the supreme court in Canada ruled that physician assisted suicide is now legal for competent adults with enduring, intolerable suffering who clearly consent to ending their lives.

The disabled should be as happy as the terminally ill about this ruling. Prior to this people were bumped off on the quiet without oversight. Now there will be a formal procedure with doctors, bureaucrats and lawyers. Nobody will be able to push you into it. There will be lots of people to complain to.

The other good news is people who are merely depressed will get help if they apply for assisted suicide. Prior to this, they bumped themselves off quietly.

Kay Carter was a friend of mine who had to sneak away to Switzerland without saying goodbye to anyone, to get help with her death. She could not risk meddling Harperites getting wind of what she was doing and interfering.

When God’s On your Side

But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust
If fire them we’re forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button
And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God’s on your side

~ Bob Dylan (born:1941-05-24 age:75) With God On Our Side
