-TORONTO — Ontario has introduced legislation to support the implementation of medically assisted dying. The Medical Assistance In Dying Statute includes a series of amendments to several pieces of legislation to provide more clarity on the issue for patients, families, doctors and other health-care providers. The changes align Ontario regulations with federal legislation passed last June that guides how medical assistance in dying can be provided, and outlines the criteria for patient eligibility such as having an incurable medical condition.
-Armed with the support of human rights and civil liberties organizations, Google is at the Supreme Court of Canada on Tuesday to appeal a ruling it says poses a threat to freedom of expression and access to information both in Canada and around the world.

Nobody joins a cult. You join a self-help group, a religious movement, a political organization. They change so gradually, by the time you realize you’re entrapped – and almost everybody does – you can’t figure a safe way back out.
