Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae speaks out on the issue of suicide prevention as an important public health matter.
Needless to say, committing suicide is a topic about which the Liberal Party of Canada has considerable first-hand knowledge and expertise.
Thomm Hartman reads a heartbreaking suicide letter from a disillusioned fellow without unemployment benefits who sees “euthanizing” himself as the only way out of his desperate situation.
I’m reminded of former congressman Alan Grayson’s famous characterization of the Republicans’ health care plan: Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly. I guess the same could be said of their approach to the problem of unemployment.
