The Trudeau government’s controversial bill on assisted dying has glided through the House of Commons – approved by a vote of 186-137.

The bill now heads into some turbulent waters in the Senate – where many in the Upper Chamber – are pushing hard for amendments.

It’s fairly certain the bill will not be passed by Monday – the day the ban on assisted dying is formally lifted in Canada.

Senators still have to debate the bill at second reading – then send it on to committee to hear from witnesses – then consider possible amendments – and then – debate and vote on the bill a final time.
