Bill C 14 on Medical Assistance in Dying Comment by Ian Gentles, Research Director, and Martha Crean, Co-President, deVeber Institute for Bioethics and Social Research 
 
Bill C14 is a significant improvement over the Parliamentary Committee’s recommendations in February.

Many psychologists and psychiatrists have spoken out against assisted dying for those suffering from mental illness such as depression.
