Understanding CMA’s journey on physician aid in dying


The Globe and Mail’s Sandra Martin (shown above) explores CMA’s journey on the physician-assisted death issue. (Click here to read her story). In a series of public town halls, we humbly consulted Canadians on end of life issues that included advance directives, palliative care, and physician aid in dying. By showing humility, we gained wisdom…. and a sense of respect for disparate points of view emerged. At the end of the day, the CMA respects that this is a decision for society to make, not doctors. The law may change as a result of either legislation or the intervention of the Supreme Court. The CMA will support its members who choose to follow their conscience within the bounds of the law.
