"EUTHANASIA AND THE POLITICS OF DEATH" from CBC's The Sunday Edition, 28 November 2010

EUTHANASIA AND THE POLITICS OF DEATH

"There can be few issues as important or as emotionally charged as the question of the end of life. We talk endlessly about the quality of life, but we rarely discuss or hear discussed the Quality of Death. If not taboo, the subject is tension filled and confusing; at the same time abstract and concrete and very personal…" Public Forum at the Howard Palmer Theatre at the Medical School on the McGill University Campus in Montreal.

"What to do in the event of death" An online reference guide from Service Québec Citizens: Life Events.
