The country’s emergence as a global leader in assisted death under the MAID program.
A data from all 11 countries where the end-of-life treatment exists shows Canada is the fastest-growing adopter in history.
The rapid growth as a human rights triumph that allows Canadians to make their own choice about when they wish to die with the full support of the state and their doctors.

The Netherlands — where assisted death has been legal for more than two decades — still has the highest global physician-assisted death rate at 5.1%
The median number in Canada is currently about 4%.

That would be my wish also.

Well, to be fair, if I lived in Canada....I'd be begging for someone to kill me too.

I’m more inclined to just let me go, if things look bleak. There’s a lot of serious and painful illness out there. Not gonna judge with out facts.

Legal medically assisted end of life transitions are a good thing IF the choice is left entirely to the patient while still cognizant. Having seen elderly loved ones suffer through dementia, I would choose to end things vice "living" like that.


Governments pressuring "inconvenient" people to do it is another thing.
