Reader's Thoughts on Assisted Suicide

Editor,

In response to Bill C-384 (Private Memberʼs Bill) to legalize euthanasia calling it “the right to die with dignity”, I morally oppose the concept of “assisted suicide”.

One has to ask for what segment of our society is this Bill designed for? The elderly? The disabled? the terminally ill? All of above? In other words the most vulnerable among us?

I cannot find or access who presented the Bill, and what is the background rationale for it?

A Thank You From the Golden Town Outreach

Editor,

On behalf of the Golden Town Outreach, many thanks to all the dedicated, compassionate volunteers that are part of everything that we offer. From those who help with the food bank, to those who help with the community gardens, cooking classes and Second Harvests program, our community benefits from the work you do.

I also extend a thank you to all the dedicated volunteers in our community who serve our community from the space of love. We must work together and help each other the best we can in the ebb and flow of life, because we are all in this together. Remember, in order to be of best of service to all, we must truly love ourselves.

Jaden Calvert

Co-chair, Golden Town Outreach

Thoughts on Rural Issues

Editor,

The recent TMI editorial advising council to take rural Meaford concerns seriously made many valid points and observations. I would like to comment on these in simple point form:

Lacklustre attendance at budget public review meetings”

  • poor weather

  • terrible communications for rural residents who get their news from Owen Sound media

  • night driving a big deal for retirees

  • farmers too busy
