  • In a 2-1 decision, British Columbia‚Äôs highest court recently upheld the federal ban on physician-assisted suicide. The ruling overturned the June, 2012 B.C. Supreme Court decision in Taylor and Carter et al. v. A.G. of Canada which struck down 241(b) of the Criminal Code prohibiting assisting another person to commit suicide.
