In 2016, Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, introduced Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD), which allowed those who were suffering from severe illnesses/disabilities to request euthanasia from medical practitioners.
It has taken a horrific turn recently, as in 2023, Trudeau will be extending it to include those experiencing mental health issues.
In his article, Maid: from Consent to Coercion, Darshan Maharaja provides yet another recent development on the MAiD front:
Even after seeing many shocking facts & revelations on the MAiD issue over the past 2 months, it came as a jolt to me that the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario has made a draft policy to the effect that the death certificate of MAiD recipients in the province will NOT show MAiD as the cause of their death…
It is also being pushed on people who didn’t request it
A Canadian army veteran, who was permanently injured during military training, was allegedly offered MAiD by a government bureaucrat, when she complained to the Federal government’s Veteran Affairs Department about the delays in installing her needed stair lift.
Why is the government doing this?
In Canada, the medical system is funded by the government, so one wonders if dollars are the motivating factor behind this push for MAiD? READ: Medically assisted deaths could save millions in health care spending: Report
