Mental Illness and Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID)
Today we dug into a very complicated issue. Should people suffering from mental illness be able to access MAID? What should the rules be around who is eligible?

We were also joined by legal expert Thomas McMorrow, Associate Professor of Legal Studies at Ontario Tech University.
