Live-stream- Challenges to Choice: Bill C-14 One Year Later

It’s been more than one year since the passage of Canada’s assisted dying law, Bill C-14, but far too many challenges to your choice remain.

Please join us on November 2nd, World Right to Die Day, for an insider’s look at how we’re helping to defend your right to end-of-life choice. You’ll hear from DWDC CEO Shanaaz Gokool, who will be joined by two very special guests: lawyers Kelly Doctor and Sean Griffin. 

You don’t want to miss out on this incredible opportunity to learn more about how far we’ve come and the steps we must take to ensure that access is respected and the Carter decision is upheld. 

Please note that this is a virtual event. You will be able to watch and listen to the live presentation in Toronto through your computer. To access the link to the live-stream, please email Kelsey Nash (email address is below)

  • Kelly Doctor is a partner at the law firm Goldblatt Partners LLP. She represented Dying With Dignity Canada in Carter v. Canada and in a recent legal challenge supporting the College of Physician and Surgeon’s policy on effective referral.
