The Debate Around Physician-Assisted Death in Canada: Where Are We Now?

April 18, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Brown Bag Lunch Seminar: Like North Carolina, Canada has been discussing the the legalization of physician “aid-in-dying.” Grab your lunch and come join us and McGill University’s Daniel Weinstock for an update of that debate in Canada, and a discussion of how it compares with North Carolina’s deliberations over House Bill 611, the “Death with Dignity Act.”

Daniel Weinstock holds his DPhil from Oxford University in Political Philosophy, and from 2002 to 2011 he was the Founding Director of the Center for Research in Ethics at the University of Montreal. In 2012 he became a Professor in the Faculty of Law and in the Department of Philosophy of McGill University, and in 2013 was appointed as Director of McGill’s Institute for Health and Social Policy.
