Letter: Canada headed down a dangerous road with assisted suicide

Editor: As you are aware, there is incredible pressure right now to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide.

Quebec pushed through its own legislation that would allow for euthanasia even though it is a criminal matter and the responsibility of the federal government.

Canada is rushing down a dangerous road without taking the time to properly examine the issues.

Once the right to life becomes subjective, it becomes logically and practically impossible to enact safeguards. If one person has a right to die because of how they feel about their condition, why can’t someone else?

Suddenly it becomes the government’s duty to kill all those who want it. We are going down a steep and dangerous road.
