LETTER: Upset by province’s stance against Lower Mainland hospice

Vocal Maple Ridge anti-MAiDs advocate opposes cancelling of contract with Delta facility

Dear Editor,

Shared letter originally directed to Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Lisa Beare:

[RE: B.C. terminates contract with hospice society refusing assisted death, Feb, 25, The News online]

It is illegal for your government to confiscate private property owned by a private society just because the organization refuses to provide sanctioned murder [Editor’s note, this refers to MAiDs or Medical Assistance in Dying, which became legal in Canada – along with assisted suicide – in June 2016].

I would like you to stop your government’s communist, draconian, and illegal actions against the Delta Hospice Society.

I look forward to your response outlining your intentions on this illegal confiscation of private property.

Laurie Geschke, Maple Ridge
