Preview Clip

The federal Liberals are calling on the Harper government to launch a national debate on the right-to-die issue following a Supreme Court of Canada decision that struck down a ban on doctor-assisted suicide. Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says it's a divisive issue, but one that needs to be tackled quickly and respectfully. (At least six reform bills on right-to-die issues have been defeated over the past two decades. Last fall, the Harper government said it would not support changing the status quo.)
