Join the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition on Parliament Hill on February 27 to oppose euthanasia for mental illness.

Join the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Tuesday, February 27 from 11 am to 12 noon as we rally to stop the implementation of euthanasia (MAiD) for mental illness in Canada.

EPC has organized a series of speeches beginning at 11 am and the media will be invited to participate. 

The speeches will be from:
  • Lia Milousis, human rights lawyer in Ottawa.
  • Alex Schadenberg, Executive Director, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition.
  • Dr Paul Saba, Family Physician from Montreal who is a hero to everyone who opposes euthanasia.
  • Several Members of Parliament and others to be announced.

Last year the federal government delayed the implementation of euthanasia for mental illness until March 17, 2024.

The federal government released the report of the Joint Parliamentary Committee on Medical Assistance in Dying on January 29, 2024 and the federal government decided to further delay the implementation of euthanasia for mental illness.

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition is thankful that the federal government is delaying the implementation of euthanasia for mental illness but we will continue to demand that the government change direction and completely stop the implementation of euthanasia for mental illness.

Will this event be live streamed for those of us who don't live in Ottawa so won't be able to attend?

Thank you

Mother of Matthew Main who was exterminated by MAiD
