Students walk out of classes after 5 youth suicides in Woodstock, Ont. | CTV News

So I guess this wouldn't be a problem if they just asked their doctor to kill them? In Ontario, the government will even provide the medication for free. Perhaps someone should explain to these students that under the new Ontario policy suicide hotlines will be tasked with referring people to the executioner of their choice rather than trying to talk someone out of killing themselves. They'll then recognize that they've walked out of class for no good reason... at least in the government's eyes.


What a sad state of affairs we've arrived at...

    The law states that anyone asking for medical help in dying must have a serious and incurable illness, disease or disability. They must also be in an “advanced state of irreversible decline in capability” and their death must be “reasonably foreseeable.”

    1. Michael: Yes. That's what was sent to the Senate. But that isn't what the final bill is going to say. The Senate has already stated that they intend to amend the bill to allow for: advanced directives, more open criterion (mental illness etc.), 'grievous suffering' in place of advanced state). In short, they intend to match the conditions set by the SCC decision last year. Further, there are already lawsuits before the court (first one came from Alberta) to eliminate the conditions inserted by the House of Commons on the grounds that they are unconstitutional.

    2. P.S. The Senate majority leader also said they intend to strip out the age requirement, opening the way for minors to request to be euthanized as well.

    3. Good reason to get rid of the Senate. They should not be able to amend bills sent them without the Commons' approval. That was my inderstanding.
