Madam Speaker, I do not often take the chance to speak for my colleagues on this side of the House, but I will right now with regard to the strategy the government is taking on this important issue of medical assistance in dying.
In 2015, in the last election, the Liberals made a commitment that they would invest $3 billion in palliative care to make sure that palliative care across the country was as available as medical assistance in dying. To date, they have not fulfilled that commitment.
The problem we have with modifying the medical assistance in dying legislation is that those who would like to have palliative and hospice care, to feel loved all the way through to the end of their life with the assistance of medicines that would relieve their pain, do not have the capability to experience that. They should have equal rights to those who want medical assistance in dying.
Why have the Liberals not delivered on their promise and why will they not commit to that today?
