e-2378 (Justice)

Initiated by Jack Hopkins from Ottawa, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Minister of Justice

  • The Federal Government has called for consultations on medical assistance in dying (MAID) eligibility criteria and a request process to be submitted by January 27, 2020.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Justice to make changes to the law, specifically Bill C-14, that would permit individuals, who have already been assessed and approved for MAID, to create an advance request, in writing or on video recording, to be used in lieu of giving personal consent at the appropriate time of their procedure, to complete the MAID process, even if they have lost cognizance and are no longer able to give that personal consent as is currently required by law.
