Conservative Party of Canada opposes expansion of euthanasia.

The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) Policy Convention (August 25, 2018) in Halifax overwhelmingly supported a party policy opposing the expansion of euthanasia (MAiD).

The policy stated that the CPC:
“Opposed the extension of euthanasia and assisted suicide to minors, to people who are not competent and people who live with psychological suffering”.

Previous CPC Policy conventions supported conscience rights for doctors, nurses and others, and opposed the legalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide.

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC) does not support a political party. We support candidates and elected representatives from all political parties that oppose euthanasia and assisted suicide.

Now that the Conservative Party of Canada has approved these policies, the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition will urge them, and others, to act on these policies.
