Month 5, Day 12: Quebec passes Dying with Dignity bill – Historic

Hi, Back in Melbourne and now with my driving license back, never thought I would live long enough to have that happen. After The Project I rang Steve Price and he is doing an interview with me on his radio station 2GB Sydney, this evening btw 8pm-12pm. Should be a good chance to get to a few Sydney supporters and I may be able to let out a great support surprise. I am still having a lot of fun and am relatively fit. My breathing however is showing signs of getting hard under exertion so the little oxy bottle is going to start being a feature. Mitchell is into exams so don’t worry about terminal illness, this is real pressure:) A friend has helped me create a Facebook thunderclap (who knew about those) to try and move the petition along, anyone with ideas how to change the game on this so I can get real numbers scale, and can do so would be hugely appreciated. I am also working with an advertising company based in Adelaide with London partners around what may be possible with a public campaign and funding process for it.

Click here to read an article which shows Choice at end of life is a real issue that can be solved, as it was in Quebec Parliament last thursday! Commonwealth country, lots of similarities and they have found a way to reflect in parliament what so many need. Choice for terminally ill patients. Well done Canada, please tell our politicians. As yet PM and Vic Premier have continued to ignore my letter too them, if you know them please give them a prod. Australia may be open for business but it is not a great place to die.

  1. Hi Peter,
    I’m from Lawnton and have put the question to my Ram about seeing if its possible to have the link on the BOS or citrix so team members (if they wish and are in support of it) can have easy access. Being there are so many of us in the coles family hopefully we can come up with a way to get this out there. I’ve also put it to my parents who own 2 supermarkets in Mackay to circulate this petition within their company and again being in the 10’s of thousands in that company hopefully this can help as well.

  2. Hi Peter,
    Today I informed a few of my team members about the petition and provided the website details and I have already shared it through my Facebook. Many agreed and support euthanasia, is it possible to hit the streets and bring it to the attention to the public and where they can sign the petition as many of the supporters that I have spoken through the years are elderly and don’t use the internet. I am based in Sydney and would be happy to help.

  3. Hi Peter,
    What an amazing man you are. I’ve signed the petition and have shared with my Facebook friends. What else can we do to spread awareness. As someone who suffers chronic illness and pain I fully support everyone’s right to choose. Let’s hope we can get somewhere!
