ARCH Disability Law Centre and The Law Society of Upper Canada host discussion about the Carter decision
ARCH Disability Law Centre and The Law Society of Upper Canada present Law Society Public Education Equality Series:
The Carter decision on physician- assisted suicide: where do people with disabilities go from here?
The recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in Carter has raised serious questions about its impact on persons with disabilities — many are concerned that the decision leaves them vulnerable.
The discussion will address what Carter means for persons with disabilities; explore the community’s concerns about the decision; and offer guidance on how community members can ensure that their voices are heard in any legislative process that develops, in order to guarantee that the interests of all persons with disabilities are recognized and protected.
