ABSTRACT
The article presents a proposal for legalized euthanasia guidelines in Canada. It is stated that proposals must prevent involuntary euthanasia, prevent unconscious coercion of the terminally ill to request euthanasia and protect and enshrine the availability of first-class palliative care. A comprehensive survey of current euthanasia practices must precede any attempts at legalization in Canada.
