Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the hon. minister for her work on the coronavirus crisis. She has been very clear on a number of issues.
I am concerned with this debate. When I was working on the palliative care motion, our Parliament voted and everyone supported the issue of palliative care. I met with groups across the country about end of life. What we heard again and again about dignity in dying and the rights of people was they needed the right to access palliative care. I heard that from every group I met with. However, the only movement we have seen from the government was mandated by the Supreme Court.
I understand we had to put this legislation in place, but I am still concerned. The Parliament of Canada voted on a national palliative care strategy to work with the provinces and territories and put in place the opportunity for people to truly die with dignity next to their families in a much more healing and holistic manner, yet we have only heard a lot of talk about that and only as an addendum to the conversation about assisted dying. We have seen no resources or commitment on palliative care.
