Just days before the Trudeau government is hoping to have its controversial bill on assisted dying passed, the B.C. Civil Liberties Association says it’s in no rush to see it passed.
Executive Director Josh Patterson says when the June 6th deadline passes, assisted dying will become legal in Canada, and it will be regulated by the rules set out by the medical profession in each of the provinces.
But Patterson says the Federal Government is creating confusion by getting involved, which could try to reverse the Supreme Court ruling that included the “grievously ill” not the just the terminally ill …
“They are left out of this bill, they are told by this government that they’re not entitled to have an assisted death, even if the Supreme Court of Canada granted them that right.”
Final vote in the Commons is expected tomorrow.
