MAID, euthanasia and assisted suicide, was sold to Canadians as an act of compassion to relieve the suffering of the terminally ill, but has led to abuses. The Canadian government is now planning to pass Bill C-7, which does away with current safeguards and allows life-ending interventions for those with mental illnesses or disabilities even if they have not had access to treatment.Alan Nichols died by MAiD because he was depressed. Roger Foley, who lives with a neurological condition, was urged to accept MAiD. One of the reasons cited was the cost of homecare. ”Madeline” was debating choosing assisted suicide because of the cost of her medication and physiotherapy. Life comes from God, and only He can take it. Share your personal experience by calling the Compassionate Community Care helpline 855-675-8749 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Update on euthanasia
The Federal government has reinstated Bill C-7 to further expand the reach of assisted suicide and euthanasia in Canada. Under the proposed legislation, medical assistance in dying (MAID) would be expanded not only to people who are dying, but would include the chronically ill and disabled, as well.
According to Dr. Ramona Coehlo and her team, “This bill effectively allows medical death on demand for almost anyone who wants it.”
Read her excellent article here.
Canada’s federal government has just re-introduced Bill C-7, which if passed would be one of the most permissive euthanasia laws in the world.
Bill C-7 will allow euthanasia for incompetent persons and those with mental illnesses. It will also eliminate the ten-day waiting period.
I’m calling on Canadians to unite against this anti-life bill. Will you help me by signing this important petition against this extreme proposal?

On the bulletin board is information about two
important issues. We encourage ALL parishioners to
read and contact government officials by mail, email
or phone. Let our governments hear your voice:
Bill C-7 an Act to amend the Criminal Code (MaiD –
medical assistance in dying) This Bill removes the
requirement that a person’s natural death be
‘reasonably foreseeable; it waves 10 day waiting
period; allows death for persons with mental illness,
such as depression and schizophrenia; a doctor or
nurse practitioner could lethally inject a person who
is not capable of consenting; and it will permit
euthanasia for people who are incompetent but
were approved in advance. Euthanasia was
legalized in Canada in 2016 – the federal
government promised a five-year review – no such
review has taken place! firstname.lastname@example.org
BC Government and the Delta Hospice Society
The BC Government has advised the Delta Hospice
Society (under Fraser Heath /lower mainland BC)
that funding will be withdrawn and the Society will
no longer be permitted to provide hospice palliative
care UNLESS they provide euthanasia at their
facility! This is a drastic measure – the extreme
opposite of what hospice palliative care is. MaiD-
medical assistance in dying – is NOT part of hospice.
Should the BC government be allowed to do this – it
will set a precedence and no hospice/palliative care
institution will be safe from the same fate. Names
and contact information for Federal and Local
government officials are listed on the bulletin board
