Madam Speaker, I do not think we are getting ahead of the law. I think the advance consent, the Audrey Parker amendment, within this legislation is exactly within the four corners of the decision in Carter. The question of when one's rights as a human being, under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, are impinged was directly related, in Carter, to having to foreshorten one's own life because one knew one might not be able to consent later.
I would say we may be slightly ahead of a court decision striking the current law down, but we are not getting ahead of the law. We are finally meeting it.
