Today we discuss the theme of suicide with two experts in light of Quebec’s Commission speciale pour la droit de mourir dans la dignite. Both of our two Quebec-based lawyers contributed factums to the commission.


Dans un premier temps, nous avons parle a Diane Demers de l’UQAM, qui a depose un memoire a la commission. Puis apres, Margaret Somerville, de la McGill Centre for Medicine, Ethics and Law, a nous donne ses remarques. Elle a egalement un livre sur la sujet, qui est intitule: Death Talk.

    Can a Ontario Resident—-go to Quebec, and have legal suicide done for them? Or will they be prosecuted by the Canadian Law-as murder, and end up in prison? My husband is quite ill with three different types of disease and failing .–Could this procedure be done for him-and if so how does one go about getting it started? The legal matters scare me. We live in Peterborough Ontario, and my husband and I want to learn about this procedure.—–Thankyou
