"'I have a letter saying that if you're so desperate, madam, we can offer you MAID, medical assistance in dying,' Ms Gauthier, 52, told a House of Commons veterans affairs committee, according to the CBC." http://ow.ly/N73050LVnKn
"A veteran and former Paralympian told a parliamentary committee that a caseworker from the Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) offered her [#AssistedSuicide], a week after the VAC Minister confirmed that at least four veterans were offered the same thing."
