- December 18, 2015: Hearing of the Government of Quebec appeal regarding the incompatibility of its articles related to “medical aid in dying” with the Criminal Code of Canada. The decision of the Court of Appeal is expected soon but at this point we do not know the exact date.
- December 10, 2015: Given the temporary suspension of the judgment of the Superior Court pending the decision of the Court of Appeal, the Quebec Government announces that the articles related to “medical aid in dying” are coming into force pending the verdict of the Court of Appeal, but cannot guarantee total immunity to doctors who participate in a process of euthanasia.
- December 9, 2015: The Quebec Court of Appeal allows the Quebec Government to challenge the judgment of the Superior Court at a hearing on December 18.
- December 1st, 2015: The Quebec Superior Court renders inoperative all the articles of the Quebec Act related to “medical aid in dying”, which were to take effect on December 10, declaring them incompatible with the Canadian Criminal Code until the Federal Government implements a new law to frame the decision of the Supreme Court to legalize assisted suicide in Canada. The judgment also points out the use of a euphemism in Quebec law to hide that it is human euthanasia.
