CANADIAN Professor of Law refutes much misused “slippery slope” argument

Hilary Young, a professor in the Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa, in a Letter to the Editor of the Ottawa Citizen refutes the many  times (mis)used argument of “slippery slope”.

She finds it unfortunate that the Bloc Québécois private member’s Bill C-384 never had much of a chance. It was defeated following second reading and never made it to committee. “This is unfortunate, because it is time that Parliament gave serious thought to enacting assisted suicide legislation”.
