B.C. assisted dying advocates dismayed by federal challenge to law

  • Thu, 12 Oct 2017 18:26

Chief Justice Christopher Hinkson of the British Columbia Supreme Court said the government should be given a second chance to argue the findings of fact that were used by the country's top court to overturn a ban on assisted dying in 2015.
