A few updates:
- The hearing has been adjourned and rescheduled for March 18th.
- The Canadian Press, in its announcement of the adjournment, reported the reaction of disability activist/advocate/scholar Norm Kunc:
Norm Kunc, who has cerebral palsy, says it’s naive to think that legalizing assisted death wouldn’t have implications on people with disabilities and he fears someone else could decide his life isn’t worth living.
I suspect there will be further coverage of today’s court developments and the reactions of stakeholder tonight and tomorrow morning. Look for it here tomorrow.
