Canada leads the way, eh? Prime Minister to introduce right to die legislation.
Oh Canada, you go girl!

Quote:On Thursday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau introduced a legislation that would make it legal for Canadians with serious medical conditions to undergo doctor-assisted suicide.

According to the New York Times, the legislation echoes a February 2015 decision by the Supreme Court of Canada, which ruled that denying the option of assisted suicide to a consenting adult suffering from an incurable or exceedingly painful condition was unconstitutional. Following the ruling, legislators had one year to write and introduce a bill on the issue, but the court extended the deadline to June 6 when Trudeau took office in November.

Given that the Liberals hold majority office in Canada's government this will likely pass and is a great step for this movement.

Clap so fantastic!!

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Having the right to die is very important to me. I'm so grateful that my government is going to recognize that right.

So far I am very happy with our new PM. Sure he isn't perfect, but I feel like he's really trying to represent what the average Canadian wants. We've needed that for a long time.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

I can only hope that my country will go in the footsteps of Canada. That's fool hope though.

I totally read the thread title with Stark's voice in my head.
