Hastening of Death

There has to more than me just not being allowed on VCHA properties.  I keep thinking back.  Randy was put on the Liverpool Pathway.  A Pathway used when physicians decide a patient should die.  They are trying to discredit/demoralize me so whatever I say would have no relevance.  And I am ashamed to say that they are meeting their goal.   Randy fought, he did not want to die. And I was able to save him for a few more months.  So what did VCHA do before he finally died, they banned me 24/7 for being disruptive (irrationality at its extreme). And I was told that it was my fault that my husband died isolated and alone. And if that was not bad enough, they went the extra mile and instructed the PGT to rob me of my spousal right with a Certificate of Incapability.  VCHA declared Randy incompetent.  A Certificate of Incapability says that a wife has no say, NONE. NONE. NONE.  They with malice intent did this. 

I came across this on the internet.  It was written by Ron Panzer who has been writing about stealth euthanasia (hastening death) for years.

"Imposed death" conveys the idea that is was not a natural death arising from an illness, that someone acted in a way to cause it, and often would be unwanted or involuntary.

More important than any of these legal definitions or musings is the complete inaccessibility of the judicial system by those who are wronged.  Civil attorneys will not take these cases as there is little monetary worth in the "eyes of the court" for a financial award to make the aggrieved "whole" in the civil court sense.  And, criminal investigations by the police are not undertaken in earnest if they are done at all. In almost all cases, the police will not get involved.  Even if you have conclusive proof that someone was murdered within a hospice or other palliative care setting (in hospital or nursing home/palliative care bed), the District attorneys refuse to prosecute.

So, the license to kill exists, and many family members recognize this and "use" the healthcare system to eliminate the elderly or disabled, or whoever, in order to get their hands on the estate/house/etc. sooner, to rid themselves of the "burden" of a family member they no longer wish to care for, or simply because they are utilitarians who do not value the life of the patient.

Whatever form the ending of life takes (assisted-suicide, euthanasia, or undeclared stealth euthanasia), the healthcare system has endorsed these endings of life/imposed deaths.  The staff, administrators, and bureaucrats in government no longer base their decision-making on a "Do No Harm" or sanctity of life ethic and this is the result.

I still do not understand.....

I keep waking up in the middle of the night wondering why has this progressed so far.  All I wanted was to be with my husband.  And with the help of Nurse Ratshed and other VCHA actors I was prevented from doing so.  I was seventy years old why did they do this.

When I started a petition in the courts in mid March 2014 within two weeks Randy was declared incompetent and he became a non-person.  To become a non-person you only have to be is incompetent and the family is denied rights to decisions. The new decision maker controls even visitation.  The new decision maker does not even have to tell you where your family member is. Families might be consulted, but so what.  In Randy's case, the same physician who put an unauthorized DNR on my husband assessed him as being incapable. Randy had no rights nor I.

I did not have to do anything wrong.  They just make you believe that you did and they document nonsense. This avenue is only a PR administrative function.  You become upset and you do not venture further than blaming yourself. They are very good at it. The world of Nurse Ratsheds.

Maybe it might be easier to understand as per the Canadian Bill C-14 Euthanasia Bill.  There is no requirement to allow family to know of the intended lethal injection.  However, VCHA encourages family involvement so the family becomes complicit in the decision.  It is PR, nothing else.

I came across this post from 2013.

The bastards at George Pearson Centre

Randy was admitted to Vancouver General Hospital late October 31 2013.  Tanu knew how sick Randy was on Thursday and she true to her word won't let me on the ward so I could see him.  What a demented person she is. Randy is very fragile and he could die at any time.

Finally, at the end of tonight at VGH, Randy became responsive to me.

I was so afraid that he might die or he was on his way to be a vegetable because of brain damage.  A vegetable created by the neglect and psychological  mistreatment of him at George Pearson Centre.

I just do not understand Vancouver Coastal Health.  They think they can do what they like without regard for human decency.  I do not know what their agenda is but will someone please tell me.

Finally, Richard Singleton advised me that Randy is not being detained against his will.  After two weeks Randy is now free and not only is he free I was told that he is also competent.  So why did they attack me on October 22 2013 and prevent Randy from exiting George Pearson Centre. What is the point of his freedom when he is with infection again and in acute care..  And I still want to knew where do these infections keep coming from.

Nothing is happening to anyone at George Pearson Centre except I am still unjustly banned. VCH is using the argument that it is private property and they do not need a reason to ban anyone from the property.  The only flaw in that argument is that the purpose of a hospital is for the patients and their families.  Patients and families triumph trespass.

I did only what Randy wanted and acted in self defence. Those $100,000 nurses that were traumatized and created the drama had a few days off with pay at the taxpayers expense. No apology just revenge by Tanu that no way I am going to be at Randy's bedside if he is sick at George Pearson Centre. Like she threatened me three years ago that she could arrange that I never see Randy again..

What has our medical system become or has it always been that way.

This should have been handled via due process in 2010 which is the policy of Vancouver Coastal Health when I asked for and even went to a board meeting and asked for help and was assured of an independent investigation of the conduct resulting in my banning which never happened..  Why should they do due process because if they did it would have to find in my favour.

Policies are made to satisfy the government but are rarely followed.

The obligation of a lawyer

I got his from a recent CBC news talk in which a lawyer said:

An overarching obligation that we have is to be an officer of the court, and our obligation to the court is even higher than to our clients.  So, if we use these types of tactics (use of blackmail) to get what our clients want, we are undermining public confidence in our work.

How stupid is VCHA

How stupid is VCHA...

What did I do that caused VCHA to ask the Supreme Court of British Columbia on 2 April 2014 to ban me for life from attending VCHA facilities including GPC except when Walker's physician deemed Walker's condition as "imminently terminal." The same doctor who put an illegal DNR on my husband.  Imminently terminal means certain death.  What kind of sick perverted person is VCHA.  And I am still banned to this day. And my husband is dead.

I asked the lawyers for VCHA a few months ago what terrible thing did I do for this continuing drastic measure. I was told that I knew what I did.  I said no I did not.  Tell me.  They refused to tell me. There must be some dreadful thing I did and VCHA does not want me to know.

In my banning letter of 29 January 2014 VCHA wrote that it was necessary that I be banned because my conduct was not respectful:

1.  called VCHA idiots  TRUE  Bullies run VCHA  FAIR COMMENT
2.  called VCHA "trio of death"  TRUE  VCHA used a trio of physicians to solicit DNRs
3.  swearing in emails  NOT SURE
4.  sending emails to staff  TRUE  How else can you communicate with staff
5.  sending emails to the Chairman of the Board  TRUE  The boss should know what is going on
6.  threatening staff by saying that I will get them and I know what car they drive  NEVER HAPPENED

This banning letter is a matter of public record that VCHA used to apply for a restraining order 2 April 2014 to ban me from all VCHA properties.

What egregious thing did I do.  Maybe someone should ask the new Attorney General of British Columbia.  He should know. He is the one at the top of the food chain.  The buck stops with him. VCHA is a creation of the government and it is responsible to British Columbia.  1-250-387-1866

This past week I had occasion to speak to a health professional and also a lawyer.  Like always, neither wanted to truly hear what I had to say.  They rushed me from their offices. They did not what to know the details of what really happened because then they would have to do something about it.   Don't Ask; Don't Tell.  There is a saying, evil is caused by good people doing nothing. And in this case not wanting to know.
6 October 2017

I was talking to a gent this afternoon (15 October 2017).  He said that he experienced much like what I did.  He was concerned about his mother who was in care.  He saved her life twice by taking her from her care faclity to emerg.  He complained.  He was visited by the mental health police.  During this same period, his name became associated with a few internet sites discrediting him.  He was convinced that Fraser Health was behind it.  I gave him my contact number.  I hope he calls me.

Diana Pepin banned from seeing mother. Doctors speak too soon.

I must be in good company.  Diana Pepin was also banned.  Her from seeing her mother.  Me from seeing my husband.  And Diana is a nurse.

  CBC Fri, Sep 29 4:38 PM MDT

A year ago, Diana Pepin installed a video camera in her disabled
mother's room after she said she had a bad feeling about the long-term
care facility.

Her 85-year-old mother can't walk and can't talk, so Pepin felt after
witnessing incidents she said put her mother at risk, she needed to be
her protection.

"I had to replace my eyes with other eyes, and the camera is eyes."

Pepin's instincts culminated Thursday when the City of Ottawa fired
three workers at the municipally run Peter D. Clark Long Term Care
Centre over incidents of verbal abuse described as "disturbing and
offensive" were captured on video.

It was the culmination of a three-year battle Pepin had been fighting
with the long-term care home, including a no trespassing order filed
against her, she said.

But Pepin said she was never prepared for what that camera would
capture in late August and early September.

"I saw the [personal support worker] leaning over my mom … but then I
heard words that just crushed me," she said, close to tears.

"'Why is it taking you so long to die?'" she said the worker said.

In another video, Pepin said a worker looked directly into the camera
and said "watch, bitch."

In total, Pepin caught three instances of abuse on camera. When she
reported them to the city, the workers were fired and another worker
was put on notice.

"Trust is broken," Pepin said.

"It's my word against [their] word, but with the camera and pictures
you have your witness with you."

Mayor 'outraged' by video

This was the sixth serious allegation of abuse against a city-run care
home since 2015.

Mayor Jim Watson found out about the video on Wednesday, after city
staff were alerted to the abuse allegation.

He said he has not seen the video but was provided a transcript by his staff.

"I was sickened to see someone in their golden years, their dying
days, being treated so disrespectfully and bullied and threatened by
someone who was put in a position of trust," Watson said.

The mayor said he was outraged by the abuse in the video, but
maintained the city's long term care homes are "very well run."

The city has ordered a third-party independent investigation of the
city's four homes. The recommendations from that investigation will be
made public.

I will never forget it. I answered the phone one June morning in 2009.
The voice on the phone said, “If you want to see your mother alive,
you will come see her in the next few days.”

A doctor was calling from Washington state and explained that my
mother, who was in her 60s, was in the final stages of chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease. He gave her literally days to live.

Two days later, I was on a plane from New York to Tacoma. I went to
see my mom, who was still in her apartment, since she said she wanted
to die at home. She rallied while I was there, and was almost her
normal self. A few days later, I went home, but asked her doctor and
home health agency to keep in close contact with me.

About a month later, her health took a downward spiral. Her doctor was
convinced she was definitely in the process of dying, so we agreed to
put her in a hospice facility, since she could not receive hospice
care in her own place. Mom was put on painkillers to make her
comfortable. I expected that she would be there for a short time, then
die peacefully.

That did not happen. Each time her grandchildren came to see her or I
called and talked with her, she rallied again. Staff were amazed.
Still, after six months, mom’s health did indeed take a turn for the
worse and the doctor again said her body had begun the process of
dying. My mother decided to go back home to Colorado to die. With
agency help, we found her a place and she took the train, which is
amazing given how ill she was.

Back in Denver, mom settled in and waited to die. But an odd and
wonderful thing happened — she did not die. She eventually found a
doctor who adjusted her medications and oxygen and took her off of all
of the heavy pain meds. She got a new wheelchair and began to venture
out into the community. Before long, she was back doing what she
loved—volunteering to advocate for people with disabilities. Weeks
after her return home, she traveled to Washington DC to help fight for
disability rights.

Terminal Illness Diagnoses Are Sometimes a Mistake
My mother’s story illustrates how doctors can and do make mistakes
when they determine that someone is terminally ill. More than seven
years have passed since that morning in June when I was first told my
mom was dying. Happily, she is still alive. Her health isn’t the best,
but she is still in her own place and still reasonably active in the

What happened to my mom happens far more often then we realize. It’s
one reason assisted-suicide laws are so dangerous. Eligibility for
assisted suicide typically depends on a doctor’s prediction of death
within six months. Distress over receiving that kind of bad news could
lead someone to make a hasty exit and, potentially, miss good years of

Fortunately, my mother, who often jokes that she’s too ornery to die,
wasn’t the kind to contemplate checking out early. But when she lived
in Washington state, all she would have had to do was ask and sign a
form and she would have been given lethal drugs.

Some people say that’s her choice. If they were talking about suicide,
that’s true. But they’re talking about doctor-assisted suicide, and
that’s the doctor’s choice, along with any others who may be involved,
whatever their reasons may be. That’s where there’s plenty of room for

These Laws Particularly Prey on the Vulnerable
Most people of color are against doctor-assisted suicide. Studies show
that blacks are treated differently than white patients and receive
inferior care, particularly in cardiac care, diabetes, and pain
management. Blacks are more likely to die because doctors have
overlooked something critical or will not listen to or believe what we
have to say about our health and pain. Also, because we’re more likely
to be poor, we are at greater risk of being persuaded or coerced by
doctors into assisted suicide, citing the financial burden we’d be to
our family.

Data from Oregon and Washington shows that people request assisted
suicide mainly for psychological and social reasons. Healthy,
nondisabled people get support to live when they express suicidal
feelings, while people who are sick and disabled, particularly those
deemed terminally ill, get suicide medication. Why not suicide
prevention, pain relief, and home care? Would that be so difficult?

Or is the difficulty and cost of quality care the real issue? A
particularly frightening reality is that some insurance companies in
Oregon and California, where doctor-assisted suicide is legal, have
begun denying cancer treatment to patients, opting instead to pay for
lethal drugs. This is not the way society should respond to human
beings’ needs for health care.

Assisted suicide laws are a bad prescription. We shouldn’t take it.

I am in big trouble.

I have to download 67,381 emails from google and it is not that easy. You cannot push a button and it will happen.    So if any of you know how I can achieve this quickly, please let me know.   I do not need the emails, only the index for 67,381 emails,  I am been struggling with thsi for weeks.  You can only cut and paste one page at a time from google mail.  That is only 25 addresess per page..  Then you cut and paste them into a word document which is not that easy.   Pages goes missing as you google back and forth.  And after a rew thousand cut and past jobs the computer is so slow I might has well be doing it by hand.  I have a hired a data base person who is trying to quicken ths process and adapt applications so the emails can be sorted as to relevancy. Then if this is successful, then it has to be sorted as to date.  After that I am not sure how that information  can be printed.  You still have 67,351 entries that has to be printed.  Thatt is, 2,696 pages. Each page would be its own documents.  So it would take forever to print.

Pleading April 2 2014

For years I could not read the pleadings from when VGHA wanted to get a restraining order so I would never be able to access any VCHA properties. The wordsmithing was so hurtful and untrue. The allegations were so so off the Bell curve...

I was rereading just now paragraph 17 of the Petition.  You cannot make this up but a $800 an hour lawyer did .This lawyer was hired by VCHA to tell the truth to the court.... he is an officer of the court.

17.  One particular example of Ms. Laferriere'e violent and aggressive behavior occurred on October 21 2013.  On that day, Ms. Laferriere trespassed into the room of a resident other than Mr. Walker at GPC.  When asked to leave the facility, Ms. Laferriere refused, then later attempted to leave the facilty with Mr. Walker in his electric wheelchair.  Staff prevented Ms. Laferriere from removing Mr. Walker, and in response, Ms. Laferriere punched two staff members,attempted to hit staff with Mr.Walker's electric wheelchair, and bite the hand of a security guard.  Ms. Laferriere later punched a police officer in the face.

note # 1:  I had an invitation to enter Carolanne's space
note # 2:  I never punched anyone; I was pushing them away
note # 3:  no electric wheelchair (a serious weapon)
note # 4:  Mr. Walker wanted to go home
note # 5.  I could not have bitten a security guard as I had no teeth capable of doing so
note # 6:  the police denied me punching them
note # 7:  it was I who phoned the police
note # 8:  I wanted to criminally charge VCHA staff with assaulting me

How is this violent and aggressive behavior.

Unfortunately, whatever a lawyer says in his pleadings a court as in this case for a restraining order has to believed. The court assumed the lawyer did an investigation prior to pleadings his case.  How could I disprove these allegatins within two days.  It was my word against his. The court would believe a lawyer firstly as he is an officer of the court.  No matter what, this document is a matter of public record and an affront to me and the defamation is there forever.

My husband was in acute/intensive care dying while they are doing this.  They did not care about my husband.  This exercise was to ban me forever from entering VCHA for life.  For what end, I do not know.  This is an abuse of the judicial system at its worse.
