I see the Interchurch Bioethics Committee is "disappointed" that Seymour's End of Life Choice bill has popped up in the Parliamentary ballot box. Well, I don't share their disappointment - I am overjoyed.
However, I appreciate those of their concerns which are based on realities. I hope, with them, that we will move through this process with dignity and precision, taking care to listen to all sides.
But to plead that the whole matter be held over indefinitely is failing to read the mood of the country. Parliament is already setting us a great example in hoping the matter will go away. Contrary to what they and the ICBC think, this matter is already an election issue and we need to make the best use of it that we can.
