Ontario's Bioethics Table is urging the province to end the need for consent before withdrawing a patient from life support if hospitals get overwhelmed during COVID-19. This is one of several recommendations made by the table. Jamil Jivani speaks with Dr. James Downar, head of the division of palliative care at the University of Ottawa and a member of the Provincial Bioethics Table.  Listen to The Evan Solomon Show podcast on the iHeart radio app, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to your podcasts.
