The B.C. Catholic has a story by Deborah Gyapong about anti-euthanasia groups pushing back against what they see as the new Parti Quebecois plans to bring in euthanasia:
Quebec grassroots group Living with Dignity director Linda Couture said the Quebec elite is masking its euthanasia plans behind the words “medical aid in dying” without defining them, she said. “Does it mean [lethally] injecting people or not?”

Couture expressed alarm at how fast the government is moving, noting the new government hopes to have a bill passed by June next year.

In early October, Radio station CJAD reported Parti Quebecois junior social services minister Veronique Hivon said she hoped to introduce legislation soon to help people who face unbearable end-of-life suffering.
