Attorney General of Canada, et al.  Written  Factums of key parties are available here.

The plaintiffs were terminally ill patients seeking physician aid in dying.  Ms. Kay Carter and the applicant Ms. Gloria Taylor both suffered from intractable and progressive diseases and are now deceased. They had joined with the others in bringing a civil claim before the British Columbia Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of the Criminal Code provisions against assisted suicide and euthanasia, specifically ss. 14, 21(1)(b), 21(2), 22, 222(1)-222(5), and 241. They focused their case, however, on s. 241, which prohibits aiding another person to commit suicide. 


The plaintiffs succeeded at trial notwithstanding the Supreme Court of Canada's 1993 decision in Rodriguez v. British Columbia (Attorney General) that s. 241 did not infringe Charter rights. A majority of the Court of Appeal, however, allowed the Attorney General of Canada’s (“AGC”) appeal.


The questions to be addressed concern the Canadian  Charter of Rights (Right to life, Equality, Fundamental justice).  Specifically, 

  • Whether trial judge erred in distinguishing Rodriguez
  • Whether the Criminal Code provision prohibiting aiding person to commit suicide infringes the Charter
  • If so, whether such infringement is justifiable 

There are quite a number of interveners.  Their briefs/factums are due August 29.
