Open Letter to the Canadian People on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide

Physicians have sent an open letter, urging all Canadians to heed the warning signs from those places which have made the mistake of entrenching these practices, and to oppose their introduction into health care in our country. The letter was originally published in the Calgary Herald on October 14, 2014.

Call to Action !


I am a physician and I want to give my support

We are an alliance of physicians against euthanasia and assisted suicide who see any law allowing doctors to intentionally end the life of their patients as contrary to the goals of medicine and the good of our patients, especially the most vulnerable and those who cannot speak for themselves.

The question of euthanasia matters to all physicians, regardless of their specialty or area of practice.
