Protection of the Vulnerable
The Laws And Policies Of Civil Government Must Provide For The Safety And Security Of The Citizens, Especially The Vulnerable Among Us
Civil government has many responsibilities however it only has one primary responsibility.
It is to provide for the safety and security of the citizens.
All other aspects of our life here in Canada break down if civil government fails to fulfill their responsibility to us in this regard.
One way that our federal government fulfills this responsibility to us is through policies and laws.
Several recent examples of the failure of the government to meet their primary responsibility to us was the Federal Liberal Government’s rush to pass marijuana laws here in Canada. Insufficient care and attention were given to the risks this legislation would have on vulnerable people that live among us in our communities.
In addition, while still failing to provide evidence that the legalization of marijuana was not harming vulnerable citizens, the federal Liberal Government implemented their plan to legalize edible marijuana products in October of last year.
Another example was the failure of the federal Liberal Government to ensure vulnerable Canadians were protected when they passed euthanasia laws.
Government leaders were repeatedly warned that a rush to pass laws deficient in protections would have lethal results. And it has.
As a result, serious gaps in protections for the vulnerable now exist between federal euthanasia law, provincial government laws and oversight provided by provincial medical colleges.
