Reality Check Time (June 6, 2016)

June 6,  2016
Canada won't have
Any law covering
Assisted death.

The flawed bill
That the Liberals
Are pushing
Through Parliament
And the Senate.

Have none
And get the legislation

The first time.

Pay out millions
In legal fees.

For the long
And emotional
Court challenge
That will come.

Those doomsayers
Who are predicting
The end
Of the medical system
In Canada.

I have
One word
For them:


For Canada's courts
Have laid out
The necessary criteria
For these cases
To occur.

The various provincial
And territorial colleges
Of physicians
Are developing
Their own guidelines
For their members.


Just because
You have
A right to control
Your life.

Doesn't mean
It will be used
By those
In extreme pain
Or a terminal condition.

And yes
The only "wild west"

Is coming
From those
With a political axe
To grind.

Author's note: On Friday, June 3, 2016, Canada's Senate started it's third reading of C-14, as the Liberal dominated House of Commons passed the bill, without any major changes, ignoring all opposition proposed changes, to it. While, this was happening, the Alberta Court of Appeal, slammed the federal government, for going against the Carter Decision, by the Supreme Court of Canada, which ruled the current law against assissted death, as unconstitional. For more, on the Alberta ruling, please click, on the following link:

Myself, I support the right, to choose, one's moment of death, whether or not, you're suffering from a terminal condition, as the propose law, would only allow. Ignoring the fact, psychairic conditions, can be, just as painful, in affecting the quality of life, of a person.
