A 54-year-old Canadian man has applied for assisted dying because he fears becoming homeless. He is one signature away from making it a reality.

Amir Farsoud, who lives in St Catharines, is in constant pain from a back injury and says that his quality of life is “awful, non-existent and terrible … I do nothing other than manage pain.”

Farsoud says it would be bearable if “he didn’t have to cope with the fear of homelessness.”

Mr. Farsoud lives in a shared rooming house but its owner has placed it on the market. He depends on social assistance and says he can’t find affordable accommodation.

“I don’t want to die but I don’t want to be homeless more than I don’t want to die,” he said.

“I know, in my present health condition, I wouldn’t survive it anyway. It wouldn’t be at all dignified waiting, so if that becomes my two options, it’s pretty much a no-brainer.”

That makes two of them– it’s also a no-brainer for Canada’s dictator-in-waiting, PM Justin Trudeau.
