NHPPA’s Vice President, Ian Stewart, was in the courtroom for the entire 16 day trial. He shared each day’s happenings. The March 10 to April 21 entries will give you a much needed perspective if you’ve only had access to mainstream media. You’ll read about the reasonable steps the parents took in the two week period leading up to the 911 calls. You’ll also read about an expert medical examiner testifying that had it not been for an ill-equipped ambulance, forcing Ezekiel to be without air for 8 minutes, he would have most likely survived. This conviction is a failure for freedom of choice and a win for “medical misadventure”.
There will be fallout for every Canadian, regardless of their personal choices in how they decide to treat their families and themselves.
