In regards to a national news article ‘Liberals table bill delaying medically assisted dying expansion to March 2024’ found on here. it says, "Experts are clear that irremediability [meaning impossible to remedy or cure] cannot be determined for mental illness," Cooper said.

That flies in the face of history and witnessing the irremediability for centuries. 

Like any other illnesses, cancers, heart diseases, a host thereof, there are instances of irremediability.
