    Dying with dignity is coming into its own. We have already had a first case, in which a woman with Lou Gehrig's disease was given court clearance for medically assisted death. Dying with dignity is one thing, but what about living with dignity? We are after all an aging population.

  • The Case Against the InquiryReuel S. Amdur
    September 20, 2016

    There are some serious reasons as to why the Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls is a bad idea. Let's begin with two. In the first place, many more Indigenous men and boys are victims. While the situation for women and girls is not completely the same, neither is it totally different from that of males. An inquiry focused on just females seems wrong-headed. The British Columbia Oppal inquiry was focused on women in response to the Robert Pickton murders, but a broader nation-wide study is another matter.
