Abstract: 

Through the examination of media discourse during three key periods from the 1990s to 2018, this thesis will demonstrate how Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) has historically, and is presently, being constructed in the Canadian mass media. This thesis will demonstrate how this reporting is impacting the nation's social consciousness, effectively normalizing and rationalizing the fledgling practice as a legitimate new mode of dying in Canada.
