Bill C-314 would have amended the Criminal Code to prevent MAID from expanding its coverage to those whose only medical condition is mental illness.
A private member’s bill to halt the expansion of Canada’s medical assistance in dying (MAID) regime to those whose only medical condition is mental illness was defeated in the House of Commons on Oct. 18 by 17 votes.
The vote failed 150–167, with the majority of Liberals voting against the bill.
Bill C-314, which was given its first reading on Feb. 10, would have amended the Canadian Criminal Code to state that a mental disorder “is not a grievous and irremediable medical condition for which a person could receive medical assistance in dying.”
