Life with Dignity is the right of every Canadian.

Every Canadian deserves excellent end-of-life care.

Every Canadian deserves to be treated with equality, especially people with disabilities and those who live with chronic physical or mental pain.

Every Canadian deserves to be protected from undue influence and be provided respect.

Bill C-384 is not limited to terminally illness, it allows euthanasia and assisted suicide for people who experience chronic physical or mental pain.

Bill C-384 defines competency as “appearing to be lucid.” In other words you do not have to be actually lucid, and

Bill C-384 is a recipe for elder abuse, it does not require a witness at the time of death and employs a relaxed standard of competency, “appearing to be lucid”. Considering the prevalence of elder abuse in Canada today, every MP should oppose this bill.

Every Canadian deserves excellent care, not to be killed.

Members of Parliament need to soundly defeat Bill C-384
