Edmonton Archbishop Richard Smith responds to the passage of Bill C-7 which expands euthanasia and assisted suicide to those without foreseeable death.

The Senate accepted a revised version of Bill C7. The bill received royal assent March 17 just over a week before the March 26 court-imposed deadline. Under the new law, Canadians who are not near the natural end of their lives can seek assisted suicide.
