Viewpoint:

I strongly believe that informed choice is the right of all Canadians.  Choosing how to manage one’s health is a journey that must include the ability to make choices about end-of-life care.   Ensuring that individuals are able to choose a dignified death that ends fear, suffering and pain is the right and compassionate thing to do.
