Maclean's shares Cardus' recent polling on MAiD perspectives among Canadians: 

"Cardus, a 'faith-based think tank' in Ottawa, asked Angus Reid to take the nation’s temperature on medical assistance in dying. The pollster found that two-thirds of respondents 'are concerned expanded MAiD will lead to people with mental health issues like depression choosing death rather than dealing with the underlying causes of their condition.' A similar proportion 'fear expanded MAiD will lead to people with disabilities or those who are elderly feeling more pressure to choose death in order to avoid being a burden on others.'"
