Rather than recognizing symptoms and reaching out to provide support to the students who need it most, those children are being thrown out of the very environment that wou...

In June 2016 Bill C-14 was enacted by the Federal Government. This bill decriminalized the assistance of suicide, by physicians and nurse practitioners, with very detailed patient eligibility requirements. The Bill, as well, reinforced the freedom of any health care worker to be permitted to be a non-participant.
