Advocates say the new law could ultimately lead disabled people in particular to seek euthanasia even in cases where the patient might recover to full health.

"A recent Angus Reid poll, commissioned by Cardus, found that 77 per cent of Canadians considered access to MAID to be a basic human right. However 48 per cent of those respondents were “cautious supporters” citing concerns around potential abuses of the system, particularly for aging and vulnerable people."
