The Canadian Supreme Court ruled that the law which bans physician assisted suicide is unconstitutional because it violates a terminally ill person’s right to life. The Court ruled that the ban causes some people to end their lives prematurely for fear that they many not be able to do so later on without the assistance of a physician (which used to be illegal).
So, in effect, the Canadian Supreme Court says that it respects life by allowing someone to end it and that a law which protects life (so that terminally ill patients aren’t coerced by family or doctors or insurance companies) is a violation of the right to life.
