Canada’s New Justice Minister Sparks Fears of More Extreme Euthanasia Regime

Canada Assisted Suicide

(LifeSiteNews) – Canada has a new Minister of Justice, and his sudden appointment has incited pro-life fears and “progressive” hopes for even more permissive changes to the nation’s already-controversial “medically assisted dying” law.

Nova Scotia MP Scott Brison announced last week that he was resigning his post as Treasury Board president and would not seek re-election, prompting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to shuffle other cabinet members to new positions and name Montreal MP David Lametti as his new Justice Minister, the Canadian Press reported. Lametti was sworn in Monday morning as part of a group of five ministers.

Lametti was a law professor and founding member of the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy at McGill University in Montreal, as well as an avowed rock ‘n’ roll fan, but many are more interested in his past statements on euthanasia and how he may act on them in his new position. CONTINUE
