Right to Die/Assisted Suicide fight is now off to the Supreme Court of Canada
There's a setback for those pushing for the right to doctor-assisted suicide for the gravely ill.
The B-C Court of Appeal has reversed a lower court ruling that said the ban violated charter rights.
Several people, including Gloria Taylor and the children of Kay Carter, who travelled to Switzerland to seek doctor-assisted suicide in 2010, launched the challenge.
Grace Pastine, lawyer for one of the plaintiffs, says seriously ill people will continue to suffer.
The decision will be challenged at the Supreme Court of Canada which has upheld the ban once already.
