• Alarming numbers of Canadians want to expand the assisted suicide program 
  • It’s already the world’s most permissive, with some 10,000 deaths every year 
  • Campaigners warn of a ‘slippery slope’ to ever more state-sanctioned killings 

A survey released this month found that more than a quarter of Canadians say being impoverished or unhoused is a good enough reason for a doctor to inject somebody with a deadly cocktail of drugs.

Even larger numbers of respondents said assisted suicide — or Medical Aid in Dying (MAID), as it is known — should be available to those with disabilities, mental illnesses or who cannot receive medical treatment.
