    Canada-Euthanizing the poor

    Oh Canada...wtf.

    https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/...sing-the-poor-

    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.

    As with most slippery slopes, it all began with a strongly worded denial that it exists. In 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada reversed 22 years of its own jurisprudence by striking down the country’s ban on assisted suicide as unconstitutional, blithely dismissing fears that the ruling would ‘initiate a descent down a slippery slope into homicide’ against the vulnerable as founded on ‘anecdotal examples’. The next year, Parliament duly enacted legislation allowing euthanasia, but only for those who suffer from a terminal illness whose natural death was ‘reasonably foreseeable’.

    It only took five years for the proverbial slope to come into view, when the Canadian parliament enacted Bill C-7, a sweeping euthanasia law which repealed the ‘reasonably foreseeable’ requirement – and the requirement that the condition should be ‘terminal’. Now, as long as someone is suffering from an illness or disability which ‘cannot be relieved under conditions that you consider acceptable’, they can take advantage of what is now known euphemistically as ‘medical assistance in dying’ (MAID for short) for free.

    Soon enough, Canadians from across the country discovered that although they would otherwise prefer to live, they were too poor to improve their conditions to a degree which was acceptable.

    Not coincidentally, Canada has some of the lowest social care spending of any industrialised country, palliative care is only accessible to a minority, and waiting times in the public healthcare sector can be unbearable, to the point where the same Supreme Court which legalised euthanasia declared those waiting times to be a violation of the right to life back in 2005.

    We're being governed ruled by a geriatric Alzheimer patient/puppet whose strings are being pulled by an elitist oligarchy who believe they can manage the world... imagine the utter maniacal, sociopathic hubris!

    Yeah, so I have no problem with this.

    I mean, I don't like that taxpayers are funding this, but the cost is lower than supporting people. As long as the decision is voluntary, I'm not sure why else this would be an issue.

    Well, there you are. Government always starts out making things voluntary. But all too soon, it always proves that coersion is at the heart of everything it does.

    The problem with giving government an inch is it grants itself authority to take a mile.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Lots of forms of euthanization going around lately. Makes me wonder if theres a common goal.

    Yes, see when you "voluntarily" choose to suicided yourself you will relinquish your remains to the state which will be processed at a human rendering plant for either food (if your lean enough) or could possibly sent to the Bio-fuel generator side and create electricity for the CBDC that the living will be obligated and subverted to serve. This way, your corpse keeps giving to the state in the form of electrons that they use to track people and manipulate the population. It's a win-win-win.

    Too many of the wrong people.
    Canada is importing millions of 3rd worlders as fast as it can to replace the "wrong" Canadians it doesn't want.
