Comments about James Bredin
Why is death with dignity seldom mentioned in our land?
Is the mere mention of assisted suicide illegal and banned?
In Oregon, Washington and Switzerland; it’s already there,

Why is this one human right denied with all government might?
Though they have abortion clinics killing babies day and night,
And a federal or provincial election almost every year,
The subject of death with dignity is avoided with great fear.

But there is no way this will be discussed or come up for debate,
Because all our elected politicians want nothing to change,
They want to stay in Ottawa for ever and why should that be
