 Master of My Fate

 

Linda McIntosh
with Steven Fletcher

 

 Though completely paralyzed from the neck down, Fletcher has been a Member of Parliament for more than a decade, making him a role model for catastrophically injured people everywhere and an inspiration for people of all abilities. By introducing two nationally significant bills into Parliament, he has challenged Canadians with a series of questions about dying with dignity. Master of My Fate not only focusses on the issue from one man’s perspective, but outlines the debate with contributions from both professionals and a broad cross-section of Canadians.

Who owns our lives? By what right do we force people to suffer intolerably as a result of grievous, irredeemable medical conditions, when all they want is to end the torment? When will Canadians truly be masters of their own fate?


For a broader perspective of this issue, please see Steven Fletcher’s cover article in the June 24, 2015 issue of The Economist: http://www.economist.com/assisted-dying

 

 


 

 

Linda McIntosh

with Steven Fletcher

The author of What Do You Do If You Don’t Die?, on Steven Fletcher’s long battle back from his devastating collision with a moose, writer and artist Linda McIntosh follows with Master of My Fate, which tackles a fundamental question of our time: should Canada adopt physician-assisted death? While focussing on the issue from one man’s perspective, this book also outlines the surrounding debate with contributions from both professionals and a broad cross-section of Canadians. McIntosh, a former Manitoba cabinet minister, and her husband Don live in Ignace, Ontario, on the shores of beautiful Lake Agimak.
