Leftist policies start out seemingly reasonable and compassionate before they become totally monstrous. Initially, there are sympathetic test cases, they started out with arguing that raped 12-year-olds should be able to get an abortion, and then before you know, it’s partial-birth abortion for bored celebrities. Euthanasia was supposed to help those with fatal illnesses suffering a great deal of pain. And then, in typical fashion, it morphed into killing teenagers and the depressed.
Where to in the Great North? How about killing the homeless and the poor?
Half of Canadians would agree to allow adults in Canada to seek medical assistance in dying due to an inability to receive medical treatment (51%) or a disability (50%). Fewer than three-in-ten would consent to expand the guidelines to include homelessness (28%) or poverty (27%) as reasons to seek medical assistance in dying.
Canadians are split when pondering if mental illness should be a justification for an adult to seek medical assistance in dying: 43% support this idea, while 45% are opposed.
That’s 1 in 4 on board with euthanasia for the poor and the homeless. Among the 18-34 crowd, it’s 40%.
And that means that this is the next bar. The conservatives will die off or be killed, leaving an exciting new electorate that has come around that the solution to a lot of problems might lie in killing inconvenient people.
Isn’t social justice wonderful?

Great article, thanks!
My reaction was, it was the young who were most in favor. Typical, in that they don’t think ahead, don’t see it happening to them. Being young and healthy, they project that outwards, and don’t see the disasters looming all around them.

Yeah, youngsters think they’ll live forever. I remember being that stupid.

“Youngsters think they’ll live forever. I remember being that stupid.”
Really ! Were you taking drugs or drinking to much alcohol ?
You should get out more.
Mind you saying that I listened to the radio about King Charles 111, the Arch Bishop of Canterbury
said to Charles may you live forever !!! How its all very strange, when he only buried his mother last year ! It’s all very mysterious to me.
“Youngsters think they’ll live forever. I remember being that stupid.”Really ! Were you taking drugs or drinking to much alcohol ?

You’re joking, right? Young people have an abiding sense of power and little sense of a beginning, middle and end to life.
There is life after death as Christ revealed
I don’t recall ever being as stupid as todays young adults. Probably because I never was.
You were probably working too hard educating yourself toward a useful career and then establishing yourself in that career. Then came marriage and children, and you had to work harder than ever. Is that a familiar meme to you? It certainly is for me!

These kids have been marinated so long in touchy-feely sentimentalism as a substitute for awareness that you could add gypsies to the list and they’d be none the wiser. Even if they were a little wiser they’d console themselves with the notion that it’s different because it’s their good intentions in play.
I think you may have something there AA but young people should feel bold and invincible. This is the correct mindset for young people and a vigorous culture. Unfortunately we did not see this much during Covid. What we saw was a bunch of green saps compulsively washing their hands every 2 minutes and getting shots almost as frequently. Sad to say this was not entirely even a selfless act in most cases. It was motivated by real phobia.
They will make great hand puppets for whatever regime follows on and they will not even know why they are hand puppets. They will know only that they have a long list of grievances and resentments.
That would certainly promote a better work ethic along with putting the proverbial boot to the backside of the lazy. What is the financial cutoff point that separates the poor from the not so poor? It is like keep a minimum balance in your bank account to keep from being fined or in this case being euthanized. Is there any way that Canada and the United States can screw up any more than they already have? Is that even possible?
Ok so what have the older generation of people (40+) done for the future generations of young people in Chinada? What kind of society leaves behind for their children an affordability crisis, a housing crisis, an opioid crisis, a climate crisis, a failing electoral system, a failing health care system and a democracy transformed into a hypocrisy by allowing the ultra wealthy and elite corrupt our politicians and roll in totalitarianism? I think it’s time the people of Chinada consider the fact that our society has failed our own children. We have collectively set our children up for future failure. They don’t stand a chance at surviving the mess the older generation is leaving behind. I don’t blame younger people for wanting to support the legal suicide of every single person over the age of 40 in this country. So before the sheeple of Chinada wrongly assume that younger generation of people haven’t thought ahead maybe try and think about what you could have done better to support our children’s future.
They should read about 5he things Lenin and Stalin did to people.
Misleading…..it states these “poor” people have a CHOICE. They will not be summarily executed or euthanized. Only they can ask to be killed.
I can see the day when ANYONE for whatever reason can gain permission to be euthanized.
BTW – what is the difference between euthanized and killed?
They live at home with their parents still while vilifying the homeless.
Ugly Sid says
Pay phones were a hit. Self serve euthanasia booths could occupy the same area, but may require more frequent maintenance [ meaning emptying of remains ].
We are dealing with an emerging market dependent upon impulse buying decisions.
The markets can sort it out. I have faith in markets. Free enterprise works; it just sometimes needs a push in the right direction. Like parking your car on a hill, just so gravity can jump into play if the stored battery juice shows morning reluctance.
Remember, the customer is always right.

Well, you could always just put them next to the alligator farm, with a conveyor and a big wood chipper. once an hour the gators get fed. Once the gators are big nuff to eat, then you harvest them for the gator tail!
There’s always resomation too, just gurgle them down the drain.
Ive been telling folks for years that our friendly neighbor to the north—is not so friendly.
They strongly identify European.

Governments with weaponry monopolies feel no impetus to friendliness towards their subjects.
Private ownership of equalizers changes that.

Of courses the problem with this euthanasia deal is that it’s still largely on a voluntary basis. That could be mitigated to some degree with the usual coordinated MSM barrage and military innovated psyops campaigns(already big in UK and Canada) to generate enthusiasm in the general population and the required volunteer rate.
Ugly Sid says
There’s that and introducing depression inducing pharmaceuticals into the water supply. Sometimes people can use a little help in decision making. And we all know the most sincere charity is anonymous, so there’s no advantage is blabbing out loud in this regard.
The best time for the rubes to figure this one out is never.

They could also feed the homeless to the hungry and fix a few problems that way too.
Soylent Green eh? Why eat bugs when you can eat uncle archie the bum!!

that’s the source of the screenshot
You put some great screenshots up to illustrate your articles. Every now and then you’ll put one up that I don’t recognize and I feel I might need to turn in my movie buff card.
Those Solyent Green trucks could be just the thing to clean up homeless camps on the city streets. Load them and their garbage up, and dump them at the city landfill.

Thank you. Glad to know someone appreciates them

An idea with possibilities. Just think if we eliminated everyone on public assistance how different things would be.

Old Goat says
Everyone has a worldview based on their beliefs. For instance if you believe in God and you believe that the Bible is God’s Word. You can understand God’s position about the poor, the fatherless, the downtrodden. You are aware of His commandments. The consequences of sin. God’s judgement, God’s justice, God’s love and His sacrifice for us.. His Word constrains us to consider the welfare and suffering of others and to show them mercy as God has shown us mercy and forgiveness. If you are Godless in your beliefs, people exist for their utilitarian value to society. There is no life after death, no judgement, no accounting to a God that for them does not exist. No right, or wrong, just the survivals of the fit and the extinction of the unfit. This is the worldview of the godless, the loveless, and the selfish. Pretty much hell on earth, only the real hell is in the life hereafter and it is too horrible to consider.
THX 1138 says
On the other hand if you truly, completely, and thoroughly-seriously believe in Original Sin, the Fall Of Man, and that we are here on earth only temporarily to seek salvation through atonement and self-sacrifice for God and neighbor, and the real goal is eternal life after you’re dead in an after-life utopia, AND that all sins can be forgiven by an omnipotent God, and he can repair all evils and all harm, and raise the dead in the after-life…
then why would you take this life on earth seriously? Why would you take sin seriously? Why would you take death and mortality seriously? The fact is you wouldn’t, not if you took all of it literally and completely seriously. And that was precisely what led to the Dark Ages, men gave up on this life on earth because ultimately it wasn’t real or important, the eternal after-life was.
Bob Hewnart says
I can’t say I entirely disagree.
I have no use for addicts. None at all. If you don’t feel the same it’s because you’ve never had to deal with them. You can’t help them. Even if you get one off drugs for a few minutes, they won’t make it. There is simply something broken inside them that can’t be fixed. I seriously doubt their minds were broken by the drugs and more likely the drug use is a side effect of an already broken mind.
I also think Canada should be annexed and turned into a theme park. And the leafs should be catapulted to the Eurosocialist hole of their choice. Or Euthanized…
I am grateful to a loving G0d that I have never had to live with an addict, but I have known a few who, with great effort fueled by their own desire to get well, have overcome their addictions and lived long, productive, happy lives. So there is hope for some.
Euthanasia is a dead end business-no repeat customers.
I chuckled at that one 🙂
I don’t believe this is anything but made-up WEF propaganda.
I think you re wrong—canadians have lost the ability to think period and I would even say closer to 2/4 and maybe 3/4 agree with this —take a walk on the wild side you maybe surprised how many people agree with this—canadians believe the propaganda more then looking at facts and doing a reality check —look at the fake pandemic–no proof of any genetic or peptide —they had been working on the corona BS since 2009 so they already had the plans to dupe people–I think what surprised the WEF/WHO —is that they knew a percentage of people were stupid but like myself was surprised as to how many–now they realize like most of us how stupid people and how high the level of stupidity exist—I think you need to take a hard look –just wait til the end of the year when the food chain is broken and not enough food to go around and then see how there views will change on euthanizing the elderly
they will be all for it
Canada has turned into a vulgar society, so it’s no surprise that the Godless has such a poor, and immoral attitude.
canada is crap they can all euthanize themselves and good riddance
Medicare will be insolvent in 2026. Do you think that the godless woke younger crowd will want to pay for old bastard healthcare?
Prepare for propaganda soon regarding 60+ people submitting to euthanasia “for the future generations.”
Joe Smoe says
No different than Iraq Sadam Hussein philosophy: “where there is a person, there is a problem. Where there is no person, there is no problem. “
In the end, it didn’t turn out well for him and his country went to hell. Same thing will happen to Canada.
Can I just ask? Is Canada over crowded? I thought it was abundant with wilderness.
Maybe these Nuevo Nazis think Canadian & US conservatives will show up en masse for euthanasia if they keep depressing and impoverishing us.
Times aren’t cheerful nor financially beneficial. But, no thanks.
Fidel Jr has indoctrinated the mindless dopes well.
michael savell says
If you believe in GOD kindly remember that Euthanasia is a mortal sin and that you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.Many folks think he will come back and that will upset the applecart..
That our leaders are making life hell here on earth is an admission that they have lost control and therefore it would appear we have made the mistake of granting them so much power
A world call to arms is on the cards and every day makes it a greater possibility.Someone,maybe from the east could make it more likely and we could start again
to care for each other rather than breaking into factions designed to harm.This whole business has to do with some medical people hankering after immortality.
They could always turn it into a tictok challenge, and weed out some of the stupid.
We should euthanize the “useless eaters”, like Democrats, welfare queens, the young who don’t want to work, or want to work starting out of college at $100,000/yr., or those who don’t have a family, kids or pay taxes.
What a crazy world!
