MPs to receive briefing on new assisted-dying bill Thursday morning

Government House leadership previously said it would wait for the bill to be presented before deciding if it would be a whipped vote for Liberal MPs, but June 6 deadline looming.

Government House Leader Dominic LeBlanc says he backtracked on whipping a vote on assisted-suicide because of discussions with 'a number of our colleagues both in caucus and elsewhere.' The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
