This thread is dead, but I'd like to toss this in...
I suggest you grow a pair of balls and read what I have to say with an open mind. Then: a)realize how correct I am or b)disagree with little things called FACTS!
All hail the mighty retarded 5Cats! He is always correct because he is always correct!

dude sounds like he is allready dead...
but the government don't have the right to deside if he should live or die.
I personally would let it go he's a lost cause, and he doesn't deserve to suffer.

Death panels? What do you think health insurance companies do? do you want democratically elected representatives making those kinds of decisions, or profiteering opportunists?

If an insurance company denies your claim, you can sue them. If that company gets a reputation for not paying claims, they will lose all their customers to companies who do pay.

If a government death panel denies your claim, you die.

Okay, Olddollie. Death panel? Really?

Well, the Canadian Consent and Capacity Board is a "PANEL" of "GOVERNMENT" officials who are empowered to make life or "DEATH" decisions about people's medical care, so yeah, really. I think "government death panel" describes them perfectly.

I'm going to preface this with "I may be a monster but..." I would let the poor thing go.

Thanks @bumbleBB for your thoughtful response (unlike some others, lolz!) idk why Manitoba is so messed up, the NDP promised 8 years ago they'd fix things. Nothing has changed.

Prehaps they're still... waiting to see a specialist!
LOLOLOLO!

And of course the Canadian taxpayer bears the brunt of the costs to keep a vegetable alive for a few more months. Send him home and let the parents pay for the thousands of $$$ worth of equipment they need for 24/7 care. I understand the parents love , but they have to understand that brain dead is brain dead, Oh wait, he could be the next prime minister or president

Okay, Olddollie. Death panel? Really? From what colleagues of mine who have or are working in the states, living under the regime of insurance controlled health care is giving yourself up to a death panel. Cost of treatment not covered in your package? Trust me, it's not often that this sort of thing sees a judge, and in this case the decision is best for everyone. The child is dying, and it's terrible, but denying that expending resources irresponsibly is ridiculous.

5cats. There are surely long waiting times for many instances. I've never seen one go as long as you've suggested but perhaps Manitoba is falling off the bandwagon more than the rest of the country. Sorry to hear about your wait, but that's really more of an issue of allocation of money into healthcare by the governement. Overworked and underpaid is a reality for me, but anyone I've ever spoken with who has worked both US and Canadian health care, say that you work there, but you come back here to have a fa

I agree with canada. I understand, you love your son, but as far as a life goes, he's dead, so all you're gonna end up w/ is a sack of organs that will never respond to you. Those organs could go to another baby to save a life.

This is exactly what we're talking about when we say "government death panel." Ask yourself, do you want these clowns to have life-or-death power over YOU?

It's too late for the Canadians, but we Americans still have a choice.

Whenever something take place in Canada, this site marks it as "Canadian".
But anyways, like K3vin said: That baby has less going for it in the life department than a Tickle-Me-Elmo.

Kevin, that why we have it right in the states. In the states my opinion means more than the governments.

I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given to me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.

I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:
I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug.

I will not be ashamed to say "I know not," nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient's recovery.

PS: remember Obama's promise that "insurance companies will no longer be able to reject children with pre-existing conditions" ?? I can find the video for those too dim to recall it.
FACT: the WHOLE insurance industry has now CEASED to offer seperate insuance to children. Why? Because if the do have "pre-existing conditions" it'll cost them a fortune, and they would have to (therefor) CHARGE a fortune for ALL children's insurance. So, naturally and Obamacare legally, they simply refuse ALL CHILDREN.
Obamacare: 1
Human beings: 0

5Cats-every time I see your conservative jargon I cringe-

Ooo poor @canUsuck! I suggest you grow a pair of balls and read what I have to say with an open mind. Then: a)realize how correct I am or b)disagree with little things called FACTS!
Your "feelings" on an issue are moot: whineing, crying and hurling insults may work with your "liberal" friends, but not with a real man (ie: me!)
