Re: [Serious] QC Dying with dignity

said by digitalfutur:

As long as the Criminal Code section regarding aiding suicide (aka active euthanasia) is in place, it supersedes provincial law, including the administration of healthcare.

That's probably true, though it may be for the courts to clarify. In any case, it wouldn't be an issue if the federal government changed the Criminal Code.

I don't see why the feds are opposing this still...

I do. The explanation, however, belongs in CanPol, where this issue has also been discussed (in connection with the case out in BC).
