Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for the work that she does with me on veterans committee. I too share a deep concern and admiration for the people who have served this country.
My colleague knows some of the things that I would like to see done to support our veterans. She hears me in committee talking about the supports that need to be in place.
When I look at this legislation, I keep coming back to the fact that people have a fundamental right to make a decision that works for them. I deeply appreciate the story my colleague shared about her father and her loved one. I remember the years that I spent as a hospice volunteer, sitting with people who were ready to go. I would be in the hospital with families and with people as they were going through that process. I was honoured to have been a part of some beautiful moments. Just bringing people food and reminding them to eat when they were going through that incredibly sad time is something I will never forget. I also remember people starving themselves and refusing all help because they so wanted to be out of their body. They wanted to be out of their pain and their suffering.
When we look at this process, we have to honour all decisions, and that is what I am hoping to see through this legislation.
