the 2011 Report from the Parliamentary Committee on Palliative and Compassionate Care outlined the importance of quality palliative care, which must be available to all Canadians in order for there to be a real choice at end of life;
upwards of 70% of Canadians do not have access to quality palliative care; and
Canadians deserve to be treated with care and compassion during their last days to live as well as they can for as long they can.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Health to help ensure that all Canadians have access to quality palliative care as an end-of-life choice by endorsing Palliative Care options such as those contained within Bill C-277, an Act providing for the Development of a Framework on Palliative Care in Canada.
