Protect the vulnerable from Medical Assisted Suicide in Canada! Contact your Canadian MP & Senators NOW.

DELTA, British Columbia (LifeSiteNews) – The “unprecedented” demand for the pro-life Delta Hospice Society’s (DHS) new Do Not Euthanize’ Advance Directive (DNE) shows people are very concerned about Canada’s ever-expanding euthanasia laws, says its president Angelina Ireland.

“We have sent thousands to people all across Canada. There is a palpable feeling among our supporters, of all ages, that they need to protect themselves,” Ireland told LifeSiteNews.

The DHS’s new DNE is a legal document protecting people against attempts to have their lives “terminated unnaturally” through lethal injection.

The DNE was officially launched in the early summer of this year.  Ireland said at the time that it was a “proactive response to those who think that our people have no right to medical treatment or to life itself.”

Ireland told LifeSiteNews that she believes the demand for the DNE is due to people realizing “that nationwide our medical system is not only broken but broke.”

“While we the people trusted that our tax dollars were going to be managed appropriately for services to keep us well, we find that our money has been squandered and medical professionals fired. Perhaps [the health system thinks] the most expedient way to balance the budget, and the backlog, is to eliminate the expensive patient altogether,” noted Ireland.

The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) failed spectacularly at resisting the initial COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates that were imposed by the government on freedom-loving Canadians.

Most CPC MPs subserviently complied with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party in creating a police-state where our Charter Rights were regularly violated, but now Pierre Poilievre would have us believe they have turned a corner and nothing like it will ever happen again. 

How can they rebuild our trust? Well, they can start by owning up to their terrible mistakes. 

SIGN: The CPC must apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID regime.

You will remember how freedom-loving Canadians were abandoned by the CPC, with Erin O'Toole calling for vaccine passports and most CPC MPs pearl-clutching about "vaccine hesitancy".

That was until the party realized how popular the Truckers' Convoy had become and got behind the movement. 

It's quite possible the CPC would still be mute on vaccine mandates and lockdowns were it not for the heroic Freedom Convoy that converged on Ottawa. 

Let's not forget the businesses, churches, schools and universities that were shuttered for months on end because of the COVID hysteria generated by politicians in Ottawa, and the CPC did nothing.

They did nothing when people started losing their livelihoods (with some Canadians even losing their lives to suicide) because of the government's deranged policy of locking people down.

The CPC must show they have learned a lesson from the COVID tyranny Canadians needlessly suffered and that they contributed to.

SIGN: Demand the CPC apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.

In yet another reminder of how disconnected from reality the CPC were, MPs like Leslyn Lewis, Marilyn Gladu and Rosemarie Falk were omitted from their "Shadow Cabinet" in November 2021 because they dared to question the COVID shots.

Canadians must still contend with vaccine mandates in some settings and the intrusive ArriveCAN system in order to re-enter the country, while we are among the last three countries in the world to continue discriminating against unvaccinated visitors who remain barred from entering. 

As Pierre Poilievre takes the reigns of the CPC, conservative voters must demand an apology from the party that abandoned them during the COVID-hysteria of the past two years. 

SIGN: The CPC can rebuild trust by apologizing for capitulating to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.

According to Ireland, there has been no new funding, in British Columbia, for “palliative care services but a disproportionate attention to increasing MAiD (Medical Assistance in Dying) teams to carry out their work.”

“Further, we see the eligibility for palliative care services being slashed from 6 months life expectancy to 3 months. What part of this national betrayal is simply cost-saving measures by the government?” she wondered.

Ireland told LifeSiteNews that the DNE is giving “people comfort that they can not only protect themselves from euthanasia but be in a position to demand palliative care.”

“If we hold the medical system to account and not allow it to kill us so easily, perhaps they will be forced to care for us,” she added.

The Delta Hospice Society’s new DNE is available to all society members at no cost. Membership for DHS costs $10 per year.

In addition, the DHS recently  released a new promotional video emphasizing the importance of protecting against attempts to have one’s life “terminated unnaturally.” The organization hopes that the short film will help spread the message of protecting life until one’s natural death.

In April of this year, the DHS scored a huge win for life at its annual general meeting: it elected a fully pro-life board and voted in a new constitution which affirms life to its “natural end.”

The Delta Hospice Society had earlier urged all of its pro-life members to attend the annual general meeting to ensure enough votes to pass a revised constitution and bylaws that “affirm life to its natural end.”

Euthanasia was legalized in Canada by the Liberal Party under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in 2016 with Bill C-14.

In recent weeks, the Trudeau government said it would be expanding the nation’s assisted suicide law, starting in 2023, to include those with mental illness.

This had some politicians, such as Conservative Party of Canada MP Leslyn Lewis and People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier, calling out Trudeau’s expansion of the nation’s assisted-suicide laws.

Bernier said last month said those pushing euthanasia on the vulnerable should be held “criminally responsible” for their actions.

Lewis recently said Canada’s expanded euthanasia laws are a “betrayal” of the “vulnerable.”
