Wonderful video for assisted dying legislation

This is an excellent video of a talk from Canada promoting the Canadian Supreme Court decision to argue that critically ill individuals who are suffering unbearably from an incurable medical condition should have the right to choose a peaceful and dignified death. 
The speaker, Grace Pastine, knew Gloria Carter and tells more of the story behind the court case that led eventually to the unanimous 9 – 0 Canadian Supreme Court decision in February 2015 and will lead to Canadian assisted dying legislation very soon.  The talk was made in June 2015 so it doesn’t include this latest news.
She includes other stories that show the cruelty of the current law and why it needs to change.
