We need to have this very IMPORTANT debate in our country. I am delighted to see that my favourite radio station, 96.3 FM is behind
This is the time to think about, listen to, and form an opinion on this very controversial issue. Having attended the bedside of both terminally ill parents and several friends who were assured they could be given pain free palliative care,and were NOT, because it can't .... I can tell you that Dr. Low's statement regarding clinician's refusal to assist in ending a terminally ill situation.... "I wish they could live in my body for 24 hours and I think they would change that opinion".
"A spokesperson from the Office of the Minister of Justice sent an email to CBC News on Tuesday, saying the government has "no intention" of reopening debate on the laws surrounding euthanasia and assisted suicide."
This should be of no surprise. The Minister of Justice is Peter MacKay. Eternally under the thumb of the Prime Minister who is at this moment great friends with the Tea Party in the USA.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne says Dr. Donald Low’s video should spark a “national conversation” on physician-assisted suicide.
“This is on the minds of many people across the country,” Wynne said Thursday, adding Ottawa can’t ignore that Canadians are concerned about end-of-life decisions.
“It’s about human beings deciding what kinds of choices they believe they should have,” the premier said at a Bay St. press conference.
