Canadians, or at least Canadian media elites, seem intent on creating a real-life version of what novelist P.D. James, in her novel "The Children of Men," called "quietus": that is, state-sanctioned mass suicide of the those deemed to be a burden to the rest of society.
John Stonestreet told you about a recent article in Maclean's magazine (think Time or Newsweek for our friends north of the border), that asked "Should doctors be paid a premium (for) assisting deaths?" The answer was a resounding "Yes!" Without such a "premium," what Canada calls "medical assistance in dying," "will exist in theory only, and not in practice."
That was just the beginning for Maclean's. The August 15, 2017, issue told the story of a palliative care doctor who decided that, in addition to providing end-of-life care to dying patients, he would assist them with the actual dying.
