Group Plans Challenge to Laws for Right to Die
by David Meyer

Over 70 people were at the Harcourt Church here recently to learn about dying with some dignity.

They heard that the group with the name Dying With Dignity is advocating several changes to laws so that people, for example, do not have to live for years with feeding tubes in them.

Retired clergyman Don Johns said mainstream churches are very conservative when it comes to dying, but he takes a liberal view that people should be able to make their own decisions. He was trained by Death With Dignity.

A wonderful summary or a wonderful meeting we hosted in Guelph, Ontario earlier this month.

If you would be interested in helping us get to your community, or would like a speaker to present at your group, please contact our National Office at info@dyingwithdignity.ca or 1. 800. 495. 6156.
