The parents of a young woman who battled terminal cancer before ending her life through assisted suicide are suing the Catholic-run St. Paul’s Hospital for transferring her to a hospice that offered MAID instead of providing it where she was. They say the hospital and the province of British Columbia violated her Charter rights. True North’s Andrew Lawton says if so-called MAID is going to continue to expand, conscience rights for facilities and practitioners that want nothing to do with it need to be protected.

Also, the City of Toronto is forging ahead with its renaming of Yonge-Dundas Square to “Sankofa Square.” But the whole exercise is based on a lie about Henry Dundas. Andrew discusses with historian and former member of Parliament Lynn McDonald.

Plus, new research from the Fraser Institute shows that parents want teachers to focus on teaching facts and not giving their own opinion or “interpretation” in the classroom. Do you agree? Education policy analyst Paige MacPherson joins the show to unpack the numbers.
