Mr. Speaker, it would appear to me that the very concept of medical assistance in dying is the concept to which my friend from Sherwood Park—Fort Saskatchewan objects. The courts have ruled that it is a violation of our charter rights as Canadians not to have access to medical assistance in dying. I know it is a very difficult and fraught topic.
I would ask the member this quite directly, not to a hypothetical. Thinking of Audrey Parker of Nova Scotia, who knew she was terminally ill and who choose to end her life earlier because she was denied an advanced directive, would he agree that these sets of amendments to the Criminal Code are fair and within the context of what the courts have directed us to do?
