Legal Assisted Suicide... Aug 27th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

The Quebec Government recently tabled Bill Fifty Two,
It’s the first DWD bill in Canada and it’s way overdue,
Pauline Marois is the first politician in Canada with guts,
While other politicians hide out and refuse to discuss.

While those on pulpits in fancy vestments call it a mortal sin,
Is that why our politicians are silent and quietly grin?
Though the Quebec Government got a standing ovation for this,
Our politicians and appointees just seem to dismiss.

Medically assisted suicide should be legal in this land,
We should thank those in Quebec as we try to follow their band.
Why is it that Quebec can get their Bill Fifty Two and we can’t
Have we all been dominated by some religious rant?
