Recent reports show that the policy of Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) has become exactly the kind of slippery slope that its opponents were warning about. Instead of offering timely healthcare, our Universal Healthcare system causes interminable wait times, and when the patient's suffering becomes unbearable, cajoles them to accept dying via MAiD as an option.
In a nutshell, the promise of Universal Healthcare has died.
