Request to Sign Petition re Bill C-277 on Palliative Care

The CSPCP Board would like you to consider signing the petition supporting MP Marilyn Gladu’s Private Member’s Bill C-277.
This is an Act Providing for the Development of a Framework on Palliative Care in Canada, as described in the attached documents.

In Ms. Gladu’s words, “the bill is looking to create accessible, quality palliative care for all Canadians regardless of social, economic or geographical factors. Quality, compassionate care for all Canadians will provide vulnerable Canadians with dignity and care at end of life.”

“In light of the medically-assisted dying legislation, terminally-ill Canadians must also have the choice to live as well as they can, for as long as they can. The Government of Canada must assist Canadians with end of life care, including palliative options. I have enclosed a form letter which you may have your members send free of charge to their local Members of Parliament, as well as to the Prime Minister.

I would like to invite you to sign my online petition calling on the Prime Minister of Canada, as well as the Minister of Health, to act on the subject of palliative care and to make it accessible to all Canadians. Please share this petition with your colleagues and staff to help raise awareness for palliative care. I am looking forward to presenting this petition to the House of Commons as soon as possible. The petition can be found through this link, https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=e-425

Please feel free to contact me or my office anytime at Marilyn.gladu@parl.gc.ca or at 613-957-2649.

Sincerely,

Marilyn Gladu
Member of Parliament for Sarnia-Lambton
