Legislation

‘Impossible’ to pass doctor-assisted suicide bill by June 6 deadline, say Senators, but Liberal MPs ‘giving it our very best shot’

Kevin Lamoureux, parliamentary secretary to the government House leader, says Monday ‘will be a very important day’ in terms of how quickly the assisted-dying legislation can get passed.

Sen. Claude Carignan, the Conservative leader in the Senate, says it will be 'impossible' to pass Bill C-14 before the June 6 deadline, and he expects the Senate to recommend several amendments to the legislation. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
