Senate Debate on Euthanasia March 15
March 15, 2023 | Daniel Kanis
The original deadline for the expansion of euthanasia to those with mental illness was March 17, 2023. However, at the beginning of February, in response to pressure from the public, the media, and medical professionals, the government introduced Bill C-39 to extend that deadline by one year, to March 17, 2024. Thankfully, that bill received royal assent on March 9, just eight days before the planned expansion.
