“229 Culpable homicide is murder
(a) where the person who causes the death of a human being
(i) means to cause his death, or
(ii) means to cause him bodily harm that he knows is likely to cause his death, and is reckless whether death ensues or not;...”
I believe the laws of Canada have been subverted by those who are supposed to uphold the law. Nine unelected judges of the Supreme Court of Canada have declared persons can be killed. They gave the elected government a time frame to bring in this perversion of justice. The government of the day set up a committee to decide who could be killed and their recommendations were published recently.
“Canada will allow people with incurable illness or disability to end their lives with a doctor's help but stopped short of extending the right to minors and the mentally ill, according to draft legislation introduced on Thursday.” Leah Schnurr, Reuters, April 14, 2016.
“Canada’s Catholic bishops have denounced the Liberal bill legalizing euthanasia and assisted suicide as ‘an affront to human dignity, an erosion of human solidarity, and a danger to all vulnerable persons.’” Lianne Laurence, April 15, 2016, Lifesite News. The Lifesite article went on to say:
“The Liberals’ long-awaited draft legislation introduced April 14 is intended to amend the two Criminal Code sections prohibiting assisted suicide and euthanasia that were struck down by the Supreme Court’s February 2015 Carter decision as unconstitutional. That court decision takes effect June 6, 2016.”
I believe what we are seeing in Canada is a perversion of law and justice by those in positions of power. Unelected judges are dictating to elected politicians. The politicians who sit in Parliament have allowed the unelected judiciary to give them an ultimatum to approve killing. Therefore, I believe the question must be asked: What is the point in voting for politicians when judges can dictate that people can be murdered by people in the medical system?
Journalist Thomas Walkom with the Toronto Star reported on February 28, 2016 that “The nub of the report is a recommendation that would amend the Criminal Code to let physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners and pharmacists — under special circumstances — kill people.
“Those being killed would be required, in writing if possible, to request their own deaths.” Source: http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2016/02/28/parliamentary-report-takes-a-too-casual-approach-to-doctor-assisted-death-walkom.html
What is even worse, helpless and vulnerable people could be pressured into accepting being killed, albeit “compassionately.” The language has been debased, mangled and twisted to make the killing sound good. Words and phrases used by most of the media are “Doctor assisted death”, “Physician assisted death,” “Medically assisted end of Life,” and on and on the sugar coated propaganda goes, to disguise the fact that people are going to be “kindly” killed. There are cases on record of people being charged with murder for killing the disabled and sentenced to prison in Canada. Now the Supreme Court of Canada is permitting killing by the state! The bizarre is now the “law.” In fact, I believe what we are seeing is: “The Marketing of Murder in Canada.”
“The bias of the Canadian news media not only trivializes the murder of one child with a disability, it also accelerates the forces that ensure future violence and more deaths.... The Latimer case and its portrayal in the media raise doubts that assisted suicide can ever be allowed without condemning some people with disabilities to an unrequested death.”
Prof. Dick Sobsey, University of Alberta Abuse and Disability Project
I believe the only way this country can be brought back to sanity is: The Not withstanding Clause in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms must be used to protect everybody from this abominable decision by unelected judges and their political handmaidens. I also believe that these judges who have advocated the criminal act that some people can be killed, should be removed from the bench and criminally charged. As should all the politicians, who are aiding and abetting them in sanctioning homicide. Otherwise, this judicial authorized murder in Canada could be the death of a decent and civilized country.
