British Columbia (MAiD) euthanasia deaths hit a record high.

The British Columbia (BC) government released the (MAiD) euthanasia stats to Terry O'Neill, a reporter for the BC Catholic paper. O'Neill states in his article:
The B.C. Catholic requested the detailed provincial statistics after the federal government’s last two annual reports on the contentious subject failed to break down provincial statistics by health region.
The BC government released the data for the first 6 months of 2021 indicating that there were 923 reported MAiD deaths.

On June 30, Health Canada released the second annual report on (MAiD) euthanasia and assisted suicide which indicated that the number of Canadian assisted deaths increased more than 34% in 2020 to 7595 reported assisted deaths up from 5,660 in 2019.

The British Columbia data indicated that there were 1572 assisted deaths in 2020 up from 1280 in 2019. The Health Canada report stated that British Columbia had the highest rate of euthanasia in Canada at 4% of all deaths.

The new British Columbia data indicates a 16% increase from 2020. Considering that the data from Ontario indicates that there were 1251 reported euthanasia deaths in the second half of 2020 and 1127 in the first half of 2020, it is likely that, compared to the first half of 2020 (we do not have the data) that 923 reported deaths in the first half of 2021 is likely greater than a 16% increase compared to the first half of 2020.

Is there enough killing yet?

Canada's federal government and the Québec government have both established committee's to discuss the further expansion of euthanasia in Canada. These committee's are discussing euthanasia for incompetent people who requested death in their advanced directive, euthanasia for children and they are discussing the rules to implement euthanasia for people with mental illness alone.

The current Canadian government is committed to more killing. We need your help.

We can change the culture with real life stories. If you have a story about someone who died by euthanasia who may have been depressed or had questionable competency or felt subtly coerced, Contact Alex Schadenberg at: or 1-877-439-3348.

Assisted suicicde is murder, or at the least, manslaughter. If you are hands on in someone's death, you are guilty.
