    I was left with the distinct impression that the motivation behind the CMA’s departure might have had less to do with the speaker’s plagiarism than with the CMA’s irritation at the WMA’s position regarding MAiD. The thinking of medical associations in Canada and the Netherlands in this area is at odds with that of most of the other medical associations represented in the WMA. It is interesting, perhaps even a little odd, that the Dutch and Canadian delegates apparently think that it is the rest of the world, and not themselves, that is on the wrong side of history in regard to euthanasia.
