Madam Speaker, before this House is a piece of legislation having to do with medical assistance in dying. This process has been discussed for the last four and a half years. Of course, there was legislation put in place, Bill C-14, in 2016. That legislation allowed for medical assistance in dying in Canada. That is covered.
My question is this: Where are the millions of dollars that were promised for palliative care?
To the hon. member's point, this country exists on the precedent that there is choice, but if people have the choice for euthanasia, then where is the choice to live until their last breath in a place where they are cared for and where they are pain-free? That is called palliative care, and the current government has failed to deliver on that. By not doing so, it has actually forced a number of people to choose euthanasia when they would not normally choose that, but because their pain levels are so high and because palliative care is not offered, they choose death.
That is wrong.
