Quality, widely accessible palliative care is one of Canada's greatest needs, says Bishop Noël Simard of Valleyfield, Que. Simard, representing the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, was among the Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders who issued a call June 14 for a well-funded, quality national palliative care strategy. The interfaith leaders made the pitch as the assisted suicide Bill C-14 was headed to third reading in the Senate before being sent back to the House of Commons.
