Breaking news on euthanasia prevention

Calling all stakeholders in the fight to combat B.C. court cases

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition of Canada will host a workshop Thursday, Aug. 18 from 7-9 p.m. at St. Michael's Hall, 9387 Holmes Street, in Burnaby to discuss how the B.C. Civil Liberties Association and the Farewell Foundation are proceeding with court cases aimed at approving euthanasia for B.C. residents.

Said EPC director Alex Schadenberg, "We will be facing a media barrage over the next few months and we must be prepared."

The fight, he added, is sure to be played out in the "court of public opinion" and anti-euthanasia forces should be prepared with "talking points and a medial strategy."

Those interested in attending the meeting should email EPC at info@epcc.ca.
