BC man says father received medically assisted death, but shouldn’t have
Medical assistance in dying (MAID) is one of the fiercest legal debates underway in Canada right now. It was supposed to be legal this month for those whose only condition is a mental illness, but the federal government delayed that eligibility expansion for at least another year. It comes after increasing pressure from psychiatrists, patient advocates and families – including a B.C. man who says his father was suicidal and still received a medically assisted death.
