SICK: Canada Offers Veteran and Former Paralympian Assisted Suicide When She Asks for a Stairlift


A Canadian veteran and former Paralympian said last week before a parliamentary committee that she was offered help with suicide when she asked for a wheelchair lift to be installed in her home.
Retired Corporal Christine Gauthier, 52, who competed in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, revealed to the committee on Thursday that a caseworker from the Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) had offered to provide her with a medically-assisted suicide kit, according to Fox News.
The event happened during a phone call to VAC, where Gauthier described her deteriorating health condition.
“I have a letter saying that if you’re so desperate, madam, we can offer you MAID, medical assistance in dying,” Gauthier said in a hearing before the House of Commons Veterans Affairs Committee.
Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) is a process through which a doctor or nurse practitioner assists an individual, at their request, to intentionally end their life.
“I was completely shocked and in despair,” Gauthier told CTV. “It is remotely just what they’re doing: exhausting us to the point of no return.”
“It was just getting too much and unbearable. And the person at VAC mentioned at that point, ‘Well, you know that we can assist you with assisted dying now if you’d like.’ And I was just shocked because I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ Like that easy, you’re going to be helping me to die but you won’t help me to live?” she added.
The veterans affairs minister admitted that at least four other veterans were offered the same thing.
