COMMENT: Hello. I wrote a response to one of James Kunstler`s readers who reported that medically assisted suicide is the sixth leading cause of death in Canada, that relates my own experiences working with the disabled in Canada — and living in poverty now in my old age — that this is misreported. Disabled and/or old people who go into hospital in Canada without family, friends, and lawyer by their sides do not come out alive. I don`t hesitate to suggest that most of the deaths in the article Too Poor to Continue Living with Dignity — Canadian Eugenics, Nov 15, 2022 are not medically assisted suicide but are probably outright medical murder.
REPLY: The depths of depravity of government know no bounds. We need to question why patients need lawyers to represent them in a healthcare setting. Medical patients are turning into healthcare victims. We saw it during COVID when hospitals were paid by insurance companies to place patients on ventilators, almost guaranteeing they’d never be released. Without an advocate, the patient/victim is at the mercy of the system.
Justin Trudeau’s dad, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, supported population “cleansing.” The Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation provided the initial foundation for the practice by highlighting the scientific achievement of genome sequencing and combining it with the potential for “reducing the burden of disease on themselves and on society as a whole.” If you’re unable to pay taxes, you are of no use to the government.
It does not even matter if you served in the military and fought to protect your country. A Canadian Forces veteran went to Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) for help with PTSD and a traumatic brain injury. A worker at the VAC offered their unsolicited “medical opinion” – kill yourself. Trudeau feigned concern in this particular incident when it became international news and said only a physician or psychiatrist could tell their patients to kill themselves.
In 2021, 10,064 people were murdered under MAID, representing 3.3% of all deaths in the nation. There was a 32.4% growth in assisted suicides from 2020 to 2021. The most common underlying issue noted was “neurological” at 45.7%. The loss of ability to engage in meaningful activities was the top concern at 86.3%. A shocking 62.3% of individuals who applied for MAID changed their minds and had to plead with the government to stay alive. They have not been keeping track of race or religion in these deaths but plan to collect that data next year, allegedly.
The law will expand this coming March, and everyone is at risk. If the program rose by over 30% in one year without the expansion, I can only imagine how many tens of thousands will be killed by the Canadian government, especially as the economy turns down and people fall on hard times. These changes always start small but become something much larger. It seemed humane to allow someone living in unbearable pain to die, but now death is a treatment option for very treatable ailments. Under this pretense, they could kill the entire homeless population, everyone living in poverty, the mentally compromised, the physically disabled, and even dissenters who the government feels are not fit for society – useless eaters.
