Manitoba Woman with ‘Grievous Medical Condition’ to Apply for Physician-Assisted Death

(CBC News) – A Manitoba woman plans to apply to the court to get to access physician-assisted death, making her the second person in the province to do so. Court documents, which seek protection for the identity of the woman, say she is from a small Manitoba community and has a grievous medical condition that meets the criteria for an exemption.
