Doctor-assisted dying bill a ‘minimalist response’ to Supreme Court ruling, designed to pass: Ogilvie

Sen. Kelvin Kenneth Ogilvie, co-chair of the special Joint House and Senate Committee on Physician-Assisted Dying, is disappointed the government’s right-to-die bill didn’t go further, saying it was designed to pass with the least controversy.

Last Thursday, Justice Minister Jody Wilson Raybould tabled the government’s legislative response to the February 2015 unanimous Supreme Court ruling that banning physician-assisted dying is unconstitutional. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
