Reports shows 757 Quebecois put to death in 2017—a 67% increase—as province’s euthanasia gains momentum
Murphy published the euthanasia data for the period December 10, 2015 to December 10, 2017, comparing the data about deaths in 2016 to the 2017 deaths.

Murphy’s writes there were 454 reported euthanasia deaths in 2016 in Québec. In 2017 there were 757 reported euthanasia deaths.
Put another way, in 2017 1.2% of all deaths in Québec were by euthanasia (lethal injection).
Murphy’s data summary is very important because the law required that the agencies responsible for euthanasia in Québec were required to report, twice yearly, for the first two years and at that point the reporting requirement would end.
Amy Hasbrouck, the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition President and founder of the disability rights group Toujours Vivant – Not Dead Yet, analysed the (October 2017) euthanasia report and found significant problems with the reporting of euthanasia in Québec.
Hasbrouck indicated the following concerns:
- 37% of forms/reports from doctors, and an unnamed percentage of reports from institutions, needed more information. Some doctors openly refused to provide the additional information requested by the Commission.
- The three cases in which the safeguards were clearly violated (two where the person did not have a “serious and incurable illness” and one where the person was not at the “end of life”)were not addressed as the crimes that they are.
- The commission could not decide compliance in 19 cases (3%).
- 5% of the cases did not respect the law
- A 5% or 7% error rate (with 3% undetermined) would not be acceptable where lives depended on the effective application of safeguards (e.g., the airline industry).
