Let’s Keep Sue Rodriguez’s Fight Alive
Here on the 25thanniversary of the death of Sue Rodrigues and just past the hallmark death of Audrey Parker, we sit with MAID – which in spite of the Supreme Court’s direction(Carter, 2015) – was deliberately designed to deny Canadian Rights for people with dementia. And to the bitter irony of all that has transpired to date, neither Sue Rodrigues nor Lee Carter would qualify for MAID today.
Svend Robinson ably supported Sue throughout her ordeal and reminds us all of her struggles in an article published in the Globe and Mail on 9 February, 2019.
Dying with Dignity Leadership Renews Appeal for MAID
Dying With Dignity Canada(DWDC) as also renewed its appeal for MAID revision based upon the sacrifices of Audrey Parker. Carefully read Dr. David Amies blog from the DWDC website. He’s very clear and definitive: MAID must be changed. And then, sign the petition. Remember Dana Livingstone’s petition from BC (on this website). She collected more than 2600 signees from across Canada. Just think what could happen when both petitions get the Ministers of Justice and Health.
