Quebec court grants extension to government to expand euthanasia law. Bill C-7 must be rejected.

Alex SchadenbergExecutive Director – Euthanasia Prevention CoalitionMore than 33,000 Canadians have signed the petition: Reject euthanasia Bill C-7 (Link).Last week Justice Baudouin of the Quebec Superior Court granted the request by Canada’s federal government to extend the time-frame to December 18 to implement a new euthanasia law.

On June 11, Canada’s federal Attorney General David Lametti filed a motion in the Quebec Superior Court asking to extend until Dec. 18, 2020, the Quebec Superior Court’s suspension of its constitutional declaration last September.Article: Five reasons to oppose euthanasia and assisted suicide (Link).Lametti told the Quebec court that the government did not pass euthanasia bill C-7 because of the unprecedented challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The federal government needs to reject Bill C-7 and begin the promised 5-year review of the euthanasia law with an open view to what is actually happening rather than expanding the euthanasia law.

“Some questions that troubled me as a mother and a believer”

How did the idea for this book arise?

Since becoming a mother I look at the world from a different point of view. Not my own, but thinking of the future that I will leave to my children. So these are questions that trouble me personally. It is a world very much in a hurry, changing rapidly, aggressive. A world where sickness is hidden, where it is borne like a great burden, where we find a lot of addiction and depression… These are questions that I raise for myself and that I don’t have a solution for.
