MONTREAL, Apr 20 ( – The public inquiry into the suspected involuntary euthanasia of Herman Krausz reopened Monday. Hospital staff from the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal testified that Krausz wished to be removed from his respirator. However, in earlier testimony from the Krausz family, it was revealed that Krausz was removed from life support despite his own and his family’s objections.

Evidence presented in the case confirmed that the Jewish General Hospital (JGH) was working under an imposed euthanasia policy. According to the National Post, a JGH policy, in effect since last July when Krausz died, states that terminally ill patients at the hospital need not “be informed of all measures that will be withheld on the grounds of futility.”
