Reach out to your local MLA
I am writing to express my concerns about Bill C-14 and C-7. As one of your constituents I would like to work towards stricter implementation for medically assisted death pertaining to mental health. With little consequences for physicians and nurse practitioners who do not follow the current protocols outlined in our legislation, I am very concerned that vulnerable individuals are currently subjected to unwanted medically assisted death, especially those performed by activist doctors.
This was brought to my attention by the recent death of Donna Duncan who ended her life through the Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) program on October 29th, 2021. Donna had not been formally diagnosed with a terminal disease and her family believes that her application for MAID should not have been approved as her mental health was in question. Her family has filed complaints to the Board of Physicians which is currently being reviewed.
For more information, please view the family's website at www.inmemoryofdonnafaith.com. They would love to connect with you.
