At least two-thirds of Canadians support assisted suicide, according to a Forum Research poll for the National Post.
The poll found 67 per cent of Canadians favor legalizing doctor-assisted suicide of terminally ill patients. In Ontario only 60 per cent of residents agreed.
The poll shows support is highest among men and respondents under the age of 65.
The survey comes as the B.C. Supreme Court considers the case of a woman with Lou Gehrig’s disease, who is fighting for the right to end her life with a doctor’s help.
