Medical Assistance in Dying

When the Medically Assistance in Dying law (MAID) was introduced Laurie knew immediately that it was unlikely that she would be able to take advantage. The combination of being near death as well as in sound mind was unlikely once the cancer had metastasized into her brain.

It looks like the changes that the Superior Court of Qu├ębec have ordered would help people in Laurie’s position but it is far from clear. The Government is now running an online questionnaire regarding MAID. Please take the time and make your opinions known. I add the link below with the caveat that there is little evidence how the Government will respond to the findings from the consultation.
