The April 2020 issue of the World Medical Journal (Vol. 66, No. 2), pages 28-37, includes an extensive article (in English only) on experiences by Canadian physicians with euthanasia and assisted suicide entitled “The ‘Normalization’ of Euthanasia in Canada: The Cautionary Tale continues”. Its authors are three Canadian physicians: Dr. Leonie Herx (Chair, Division of Palliative Medicine, Associate Professor, Department of Medicine, Queen’s University, Kingston), Dr. Margaret Cottle (Assistant Professor, Division of Palliative Care, Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia, Vancouver), and Dr. John F. Scott (Associate Professor, Division of Palliative Care, Department of Medicine, University of Ottawa). In addition to the authors, over 140 Canadian physicians have added their names as “endorsers” to the article, including the founder of palliative care in Canada, Dr. Balfour Mount.
