moved for leave to introduce Bill C-562, An Act to amend the Criminal Code (right to die with dignity).
Mr. Speaker, I am moved this morning when I think about all of the people who supported the first version of this bill and were so eager to see it implemented.
However, my thoughts go especially to all those who are suffering, who meet the conditions in this bill and who could choose to die with dignity. As long as the Criminal Code is not amended—and I am proposing that it should be—they will not have this choice.
I hope that this Parliament will make it possible for these people to exercise this ultimate freedom.
