“Mental disorders lack prognostic predictability” says Dutch psychiatric expert Dr. Sisco van Veen. “Determining when psychiatric suffering has become irremediable or incurable is particularly challenging. Some argue it is practically impossible.”
In early 2023, Canada will become one of the few nations in the world allowing medical aid in dying for people whose sole underlying condition is depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, schizophrenia, PTSD or any other mental affliction. Critics of the world’s most “progressive” euthanasia program recently expanded condemnation of Canada’s assisted dying policies.
“After pleading unsuccessfully for affordable housing to help ease her chronic health condition, a Canadian woman ended her life in February under the country’s assisted-suicide laws. Another woman, suffering from the same condition and also living on disability payments, has nearly reached final approval to end her life.”
In February 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that laws prohibiting medical assistance in dying would no longer be valid. The Supreme Court gave the government until June 6, 2016, to create a new law.
Under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, euthanasia in Canada was legalized. An interesting “footnote” exists– Pierre Trudeau was prime minister at the time abortion legalized in Canada. The very young and the very old– a Trudeau-family specialty. What “efficient” leaders they have been.
In April, 2022, U.K. publication The Spectator ran a story with a provocative headline: “Why is Canada euthanizing the poor?” So provocative is the issue that Canadian media have completely ignored it.
Let us note the following, as published in The Spectator on April 30th, 2022:
“Since last year, Canadian law, in all its majesty, has allowed both the rich as well as the poor to kill themselves if they are too poor to continue living with dignity. In fact, the ever-generous Canadian state will even pay for their deaths. What it will not do is spend money to allow them to live instead of killing themselves.”
Cultural Action Party has written ad nauseum about our Liberal government’s incremental application of authoritarian governance. As derived from dictatorial societies, laws which would be rejected by the public are introduced in piecemeal fashion.
In June 2016, the Parliament of Canada passed federal legislation that allows eligible Canadian adults to request medical assistance in dying, but only for those who suffer from a terminal illness whose natural death was “reasonably foreseeable.”
Afterwhich Canadian parliament enacted Bill C-7, repealing the “reasonably foreseeable” requirement. Bill C-7 made assisted dying available for any citizen of Canada who has an incurable physical condition.
“Canada Will Soon Offer Doctor-Assisted Death To The Mentally Ill”
Thus reads a National Post headline from April, 2022. Now, according to reports from the United Kingdom, the Liberals are permitting euthanasia for Canadians who cannot find proper housing, and those living on disability payments.
Legacy media in Canada say nothing regarding the dire circumstances. CAP say that the Trudeau government has established an incremental agenda of accelerated euthanasia policy. This is serious business. We are speaking of the most permissive assisted dying policies in the western world, and likely, the entire world. CBC, CTV, Globe & Mail, Toronto Star? Not a problem for them.
“According to The Spectator, a woman in Ontario was forced into euthanasia because her housing benefits did not allow her to get better housing which didn’t aggravate her crippling allergies. Another disabled woman applied to die because she simply cannot afford to keep on living.”
Welcome to Sunny Ways Canada. This entire spectacle should elicit a feeling of repugnance within society. It doesn’t– because 98% of citizens are unaware of the circumstances. We speak of a life-and-death situation– of which Canadian media has no concern for.
And what of government? If understood properly, even the most idealistic woke Liberal would question the program. If not, CAP recommend our snowflake contingent think back to historical governments of mid-20th century Europe. Fascist policies of the day reflect a remarkable affinity with the sunny ways of Trudeau and the Liberals.
Our Canada is in deep trouble. A chasm of magnanimous proportions exists between our controlling institutions, and the desire of the people. While Canadians believe in freedom and democracy, federal government is founded upon neo-totalitarian political principles.
As media play their part in obscuring the agenda of government, Justin Trudeau walks our nation down a path toward a replication of communist nations he so admires.
