Brickbat: Our Final Offer

Pulled plug

Christine Gauthier, a paraplegic former member of the Canadian army, told members of the House of Commons that she contacted Veterans Affairs Canada trying to find out why it was taking so long to get a wheelchair ramp in her home. She said she got a letter back offering her assisted suicide instead. “I have a letter saying that if you’re so desperate, madam, we can offer you MAID, medical assistance in dying,” said Gauthier. Gauthier said she has been trying to get the ramp for five years.
