Conscientious objection accommodation in medicine - a new look
I published in 2015 an Editorial in Bioethics where I took the stance that we have no good ethical reasons to accommodate conscientious objectors in medicine in liberal democracies. That Editorial led to a bit of a splash among religious activists who liber...

AIDS and Medical Aid in Dying - are there lessons to be learned?
Canadians debate currently where to draw the line in the sand in terms of eligibility criteria for medical aid in dying. The federal government is determined to push thru a bill that is uncontroversially unconstitutional by limiting access to terminally ill...

State of Affairs: Canada's Medical Aid in Dying Legislation
I have explained on this blog (just see the entry below) how Canada's Liberal government's draft legislation aims to deprive Canadians who are not terminally ill, but who are eligible for medical aid in dying, of their Charter rights. A fairly large number ...

Is assisted dying the baby boomers’ last frontier?
It is truly remarkable how radically Western societies were remade
by the baby boomer generation. They campaigned for the decriminalisation of
abortion and succeeded in most liberal democracies. As Carole Levine rightly
notes, ‘the women’s movement of the 1...

2016 Google Bioethics Scholar Metrics
I suspect I could have had this easier, but be that as it may, I searched for bioethics/health care ethics/ medical ethics journal on google scholar to see how they fare in terms of citations over the last five years. I'm afraid the list isn't quite complet...

How Canada's new Liberal government plans to deprive Canadians of their Charter rights
It is becoming clearer by the day that our newly elected federal government has an insatiable appetite for talking progressive while governing conservative. I suspect this will be our new normal until election time. The behaviour pattern is obvious. I doubt...

I have eaten a few times in this pub. Frankly, I have no idea why people complain about the food or its prices. This is distinctly above-your-average pub-food quality, and the prices are very reasonable. Try the spring rolls for current 11$, they're nearly a meal replacement, that's how substantial the portions are. Service is ok, well, and as to the interior. It's an odd mix of stuff. In the back they've the venue for life performances, then another section with piles of pool tables, a large patio for the summer months and then yet another section for dance music which is also used for diners. It's just a massive place, nothing cozy about it, but I'm glad it is in the neighbourhood. Service is also usually friendly and competent.

I love this little gem of an airport. Most convenient for flights to Chicago and onwards. They offer free espresso, parking and wifi. Delightful.

Must say that I am a bit bemused about this company.I own various of its products, including two imacs, an ipad (1st gen), a macbook air and a timecapsule. Well, one of the imacs (cost me new about 1700$ or thereabouts) crapped up on me within less than two years and the Apple geniuses in Ottawa tell me that it would cost me 800$ to fix a component that should be working flawlessly for another couple of yrs. The Ipad shuts down programs randomly for no good reason at all, the brand new Timecapsule didn't work at all. Might all be coincidence, of course, but really I think at this stage that their hardware sucks beyond belief. I'm pretty much giving up on Apple and will buy a cheaper competitor's product (they won't offer much worse performance and reliability either, unfortunately, but at less than half the Apple price). I'm puzzled that this company believes it will survive by charging the living hell out of people for its products and offering precious little quality in return. Bit like Vaio really, this premium brand eventually also sank without a trace due to continuing quality issues. And no, Apple genius, it ain't good enough to charge another 800 $ for a repair that should never have been necessary at that point in the life of the computer...
