MP Steven Fletcher to introduce 2 bills on assisted suicide

While not expected to be supported by the Harper government, Conservative MP and former cabinet minister Steven Fletcher plans to introduce two private members bills dealing with assisted suicide.  One would allow doctors to assist people in ending their lives under restricted circumstances. The other would set up a commission to monitor the system.  It will be interesting to see how this issue plays out with the pending appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada in the Carter/Taylor case.
