A parliamentary committee is urging there be few obstacles to doctor-assisted death for people suffering from terminal medical conditions.
Former Conservative MP and assisted dying advocate Steven Fletcher tells 680 CJOB when he proposed legislation on the issue while in office, he wanted to make sure there was as little red tape as possible.
“This is one of those unique issues where people will come together and do what is best for Canada without a partisan lens informing the legislation,” says Fletcher. “The committee did a good job summarizing the issues, identifying the challenges and bringing forward recommendations.”
The federal government has until June 6th to draft new legislation on doctor-assisted death.
