Mr. Speaker, I would like to talk about something that happened just a few minutes ago. Someone I know quite well contacted me, someone who is not currently eligible for medical assistance in dying under the legislation and would probably qualify under the new provisions. This person is in intolerable pain and suffering and has reached out to many people, asking for help.
I believe the reason the government has decided to proceed with some of these changes is to meet that need and help us reduce unnecessary suffering at the end of life. This is not someone who is being pressured. This is someone whose condition is deteriorating quite rapidly and is, as I said, in enormous pain. I ask the member to think about that motivation here for us to reach out and help those people and those families who are faced with this right now, not months from now.
