    Karl Marx famously observed, in the Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, that "The tradition of all the dead generations weighs like a nightmare on the brain of the living." This quotation came to mind when I reflected on the putrid and bizarre changes to social assistance in Ontario over the years that are carried over from government to government, coming back like that bad penny. As has been said, the bad penny always turns up, even now that the penny is no longer with us.

    It took a Supreme Court decision to make the ultimate decision on the fate of Hassan Rasouli, on life support at Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital.

The two presenters from VHA Home Health Care were Sue Grant, a nurse, and Jose Medeiros, a social worker.
