Mr. Speaker, I just want to comment on access to palliative care, which is indeed very important.
I would remind the House that the Conservatives were the first to cut health transfers. If health transfers had been as high as 25 cents per dollar, there might have been even greater access to palliative care.
That being said, the minister has introduced a bill that responds in all respects to the Baudoin ruling and to the condition raised with regard to the state of health of Ms. Gladu and Mr. Truchon, who were denied the possibility to choose. True freedom of choice requires that there be options.
The minister says that practitioners are able to discern when people with Alzheimer's who initially seemed in favour of medical assistance in dying may have changed their minds along the way. If doctors are able to discern that these people have changed their minds along the way, then why are they not eligible, like Ms. Gladu and Mr. Truchon?
