Letter: Please support Bill C-277

Editor: I am writing today to ask people to support private members Bill C-277, which would establish a national palliative care framework.

It is monstrous that our government has legalized the killing of patients to end suffering, but has not yet addressed the lack of resources for compassionate palliative care, which can also end suffering, without killing the patient. Quality, compassionate care will provide vulnerable Canadians with dignity and care at end of life.

Please support Bill C-277.
