Townhall Meeting on Physician-Assisted Dying

Friday, May 13, 2016
St. Andrews Wesley Church - 2:30pm to 4:00pm
1022 Nelson Street, Vancouver
The Government of Canada recognizes that medical assistance in dying is a difficult and deeply personal issue. It is important to defend people's choices and freedoms in a way that protects the most vulnerable, and also supports the personal convictions of health care providers.
 
The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, Jody Wilson-Raybould, together with the Minister of Health, Jane Philpott, announced that proposed legislation has been introduced that would give dying patients, who are suffering intolerably from a serious medical condition, the choice of a medically-assisted death.
 
Now, residents of Vancouver Centre are invited to share your views and learn more about the proposed legislation.
