Just for starters, I really object to the use of the word euthanasia in this context. Goddess knows how people's feelings toward animal euthanasia have evolved over the years with progress in treatments and pain medications, but her mindset it definitely stuck in the past.
She draws deliberately misleading lines between "euthanasia", palliative care, and drug-induced comas. There's so much she doesn't understand, or even want to explore, but that doesn't stop her from pronouncing a moral judgement on an entire society, does it?
What's this about collective depression? I sure don't see how Quebec is so awful, so much more anxious or depressed than anywhere else.
Kay strikes me as one of those Anglos who looks down at Quebec society from above, who benefits from relatively peaceful and egalitarian (albeit imperfect) institutions, while looking down her nose at them.
