From the Editor
Over the years, Readings have considered big papers and big essays. This week’s Reading considers big legislation.
Last Friday, C-14 was given Royal Assent, having finally achieved Senate approval, thereby becoming law.
“An Act to amend the Criminal Code and to make related amendments to other Acts (medical assistance in dying)” is unlikely to be the end of this debate. Indeed, it is likely to be part of the beginning of a larger societal debate on death and medicine.
In this Reading, we look at C-14 and, as well, an essay by Dr. Sonu Gaind on mental illness and physician-assisted death.
