The Supreme Court of Canada has announced it will revisit the issue of assisted death. The court has agreed to hear an appeal in the case of Kay Carter and Gloria Taylor, who succeeded in briefly overturning the law in 2012. A B.C. judge ruled the law unconstitutional, but delayed her ruling for a year to allow the federal government to rewrite the statute. The provincial court of appeal then overturned that decision. The high court’s decision to revisit the issue comes more than 20 years after its landmark ruling on the issue in the case of Sue Rodriguez, which went against assisted death. Both the principals in the current case are deceased, but the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association is continuing the fight.
