End-of-life is a precious moment, for us and for the person leaving us. It is our responsibility to make it a privileged moment, to make ourselves available, to look at our loved ones under a new light, and to see them as they truly are. End-of-life is a period where we simplify and show the essential of what we want to leave to our loved ones.–Dr. Patrick Vinay

I think it would be a disastrous mistake to legalize euthanasia in Quebec and Canada.–Dr. Balfour Mount
