Know Your Rights - Removed by consent

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms supports the inherent right of Canadians to exercise free power of choice and thus to refuse a medical treatment without disadvantage or prejudice. The Supreme Court of Canada has recognized this inherent right under s.7 of the Charter.

Ethically and legally, there is no distinction between discontinuing treatment and refusing it in the first place.
