Dying With Dignity Canada is holding rallies in Vancouver and Victoria in support of end of life choices and the start of the hearings for the Carter Case at the BC Court of Appeal.

From the Dying with Dignity Website:

The hearing of the Attorney General of Canada's appeal of the BC Supreme Court ruling is scheduled to begin on March 4, 2013 in Vancouver.

This will be a time of great interest for the media and we do not doubt that The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition will be out with their fear-mongering signs (such as “Assisted Suicide is Elder Abuse” or “Stop the Killing”).

Local residents in Vancouver and Victoria and are organizing these events and teaming up with a coalition of folks from local Unitarian churches, the Raging Grannies, BC Civil Liberties and others.  All our welcome! 

Please Come and Make your voice heard!!!!! 

Join like-minded folks for either of the rallies that are being planned for the first day of the appeal hearing:

  • In Victoria on March 4, 2013 at the Legislative Building at 10:00 a.m.
  • In Vancouver on March 4, 2103 at the NW corner of the Court House at 9:00 a.m.

We can’t let them control the media agenda!  This is an incredibly important time for all of us committed to the right to die with dignity.
