MAID in Canada - how physician-assisted suicide changes everything


On Thursday, April 12, 2018, at Our Lady of Lourdes, immediately after the 7 p.m. Mass, the Knights of Columbus of Mary Mother of the Church, Council #11888 invite you to hear Sandra Kary, Executive Director of the Catholic Health Association of Saskatchewan (CHAS) speak about MAID, or Medical Assistance In Dying. MAID is a term used by lawmakers and government in reference to euthanasia and physician-assisted death, after it became legal in June 2016. Sandra considers what this means for us now. Her presentation will offer a brief history of the legal changes in Canada that have brought us to where we are today, define what is meant by euthanasia and assisted suicide, and dis-cuss the impact within our faith-based health facilities and communities regarding end-of-life care.
