Quebec’s going ahead with its right-to-die law: despite a request from Ottawa to put it on hold.

The legislation will take effect December 10th – as planned.

Yesterday, Federal Health Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould asked Quebec to suspend its law – while her government prepares its own legislation on the controversial issue.

Last February, The Supreme Court of Canada ruled that Ottawa had to table new right-to-die legislation and it had to come within a year after the court struck down the country’s ban on assisted death.

The new Quebec law will only be put on hold – if a provincial physicians group – gets an injunction to stop the legislation.

The Quebec Court is expected to rule Monday on the request filed by the doctors.
