MORE DWD … OCT 8TH,2012

Death with dignity was not mentioned in Trudeau’s Charter of Rights,
Therefore our politicians avoid this issue with great delight,
But our Supreme Court banned it and Sue Rodriguez had to die,
This rule was law for all Canadians and it had to apply.




The Americans in Oregon and Washington have it now,
It’s a state issue there and doesn’t seem to cause any row,
Where Americans can decide when and where and how to die,
But Canadians are banned and no one really knows why.




Quebec might try to make it a provincial issue here,
Where Quebecois could look forward to death with no great fear,
So it’s obvious that this issue is not going away any time soon,
Unfortunately our Supreme Court is not known to change their tune.
