Enroute to Ottawa to tell the government about my friend Mr. Fuchs
Hour one of a five hour drive to Ottawa to participate in a demonstration in front of the Parliament building. Hoping also to meet with the Honourable Jane Philpott, Minister of Health to tell her about my friend Mr. Fuchs.
By order of his son, Mr. Fuchs was rendered unconscious with drugs then denied liquids and nourishment until he died of starvation on July 11, 2014.
Society must stop 'disposing' of the sick and elderly because we are a financial burden on our family or the health care system - instead, the sick and elderly need effective and universally available palliative care, and exceptional pain management techniques.
