Original language of petition: English
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED RESIDENTS OF CANADA, draw the attention of the House to the following:
THAT in the 41st Parliament, the House of Commons unanimously passed a motion calling on the Government to create a national strategy on palliative care to ensure every Canadian has access to high quality palliative care at the end of life;
THAT in Carter v Canada (AG), the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that competent and consenting adults who have a grievous and irremediable medical condition that causes enduring and intolerable suffering should be allowed to access physician-assisted suicide/euthanasia;
THAT it is impossible for a person to give informed consent to assisted suicide/euthanasia if appropriate palliative care is unavailable to them. THEREFORE your petitioners call upon Parliament to establish a National Strategy on Palliative Care.
Only validated signatures are counted towards the total number of signatures.
