Bill C-14: What Went Wrong?- Toronto- September 17th 2016

The Humanist Association of Toronto is hosting a presentation on Bill C-14 featuring author Gary Bauslaugh. 

The Supreme Court of Canada’s historic ruling in February, 2015 declared the law prohibiting assisted death unconstitutional and provided guidelines for new legislation that would be in tune with our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Then it went to the politicians to pass actual legislation.


The results, however, were tragically inadequate. A highly flawed law was passed in June - a betrayal of the efforts of many Canadians to protect the right of grievously ill and suffering Canadians to have a dignified and peaceful death.
Gary Bauslaugh discusses how and why this happened and looks at where we go from here.


Gary Bauslaugh is the author of three books related to assisted death in Canada; his most recent (The Right to Die, April 2016) tells the stories of the courageous Canadians whose often heroic actions helped create a climate of acceptance for legalizing assisted death in Canada. He is also the author of Robert Latimer, a Story of Justice and Mercy and The Secret Power of Juries.
