While the popular term “right to die” has been used to describe the debate over end-of-life decisions, the underlying issues encompass a variety of legal concepts, some of which are different and some overlap. For example, the “right to die” could include issues of suicide, passive euthanasia (allowing a person to refuse or withdraw medical intervention), assisted suicide (providing the means to commit suicide to one person), active euthanasia (killing another), and palliative care (providing comfort care that speeds up the dying process). Recently, a new category has been proposed – physician-assisted suicide – which appears to be a dangerous mix of assisted suicide or active euthanasia performed by a licensed physician. Dual criminality – Bringing a person to justice more than once for the same crime.

Imposition of legal obligations and penalties on ordinary air carriers. — The legislator has considerable leeway to impose legal burdens on ordinary air carriers, provided that they are not prevented from transferring those burdens. For example, a statute may hold an original rail carrier215 or the connecting or delivery carrier216 liable to the shipper for the non-delivery of goods attributable to the fault of another person, as long as the carrier has the right to bring an action against the offending carrier. Similarly, a railway may be liable for damage suffered by the owner of property damaged by fire caused by locomotives, since the law has also granted the railway an insurable interest in that property along its route, which allows it to purchase insurance against that liability.217 Similarly, In accordance with due process requirements, the Orders in Council are: which provide a penalty for all ordinary carriers for non-payment of claims for lost or damaged goods. within a reasonable time.218 49 Coleman v.
