“An Adult Conversation on Medically Assisted Dying”
Canadas right-to-die movement turned a major corner this year when Quebec passed a law permitting physician-assisted death for some terminally ill patients.
Those leading the charge say the rest of the country will soon follow suit. That hasnt stopped the decades-long and passionate YES/NO debate from continuing but we need to move on to how Canadians will address the issues within their own families.
Given this new reality, and the potential for more legislation, hosts Libby Znaimer and CARP VP Advocacy Susan Eng explore the latest developments in the right-to-die movement and what families need to know as they grapple with end-of-life decisions with special guests MP Steven Fletcher, PQ MNA Veronique Hivon, The Globe and Mails Andre Picard and other key public figures who speak for doctors and nurses at the front lines of end-of-life care
