Without C-14 on the books, Canada will have the most open death hastening culture in the world

Bill C-14 is not perfect. Given how diverse and polarized the opinions are, trying to land on a perfect Bill—or as some have opined, ‘getting it right’—is like trying to achieve unison when everyone is singing from a different score. Now more than ever, wisdom and restraint must guide Canada through this transformative change in our approach to suffering.
