The mother of one of the plaintiffs in the successful “death with dignity case” is delighted with today’s Canadian Supreme Court decision.
It has overturned the ban on doctor-assisted suicide in certain extreme circumstances.
Anne Fomenoff lives in Castlegar.
Her daughter Gloria Taylor — who died of ALS in 2012 — was part of the case and had already won a BC Supreme Court ruling.

Fomenoff, 87, says the ruling has helped open the door for all families to discuss death more openly.
Canada has a year to amend its laws.
