Ginette Leblanc from Trois-Rivières, PQ, has initiated her constitutional challenge to s. 241(b) of the Criminal Code. Ms Leblanc has ALS and is represented by Mr. René Duval.
On January 27th AQDMD (Association Québécoise Pour le Droit de Mourir dans la Dignité) filed its application to intervene in support of Ms Leblanc. The Christian Legal Fellowship and the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition intend to intervene to oppose the case.
It is expected that the expert evidence for the case will be filed by April 2012.
