Default Canada VA: WTF?

As much as we complain about our VA dept, at least they don't manage vets' health issues with euthanasia. Socialism I guess, gotta keep the cost of all the freebies under control...

Sees more like lack of oversight and poor training/accountability for personnel, after reading the article.

But discussing MAID with veterans is not within the scope of the VAC, an agency in charge of the care of a population already at higher risk of suicide.

I don't think you should ever discuss euthanasia over the phone on a help hotline. If you're even going to go there, needs to be in person, right time and place.

Canadian VA: “Struggling with PTSD? Thinking about killing yourself? Let us help! (kill you)”

Yes. We hashed that out a while ago.

"Double-U Tee Eff" is a stand alone emphatic, one degree of separation removed from the F-bomb.

F-bomb and other other four-letter words are still no bueno.
