CTV: Manitoba’s highest court rules family of Brian Sinclair can sue health authority

May 6, 2015 — 

Law professor Karen Busby was recently quoted in two media reports, once concerning the death of Brian Sinclair, and the other concerning public prayer.


“How ironic is it that if government contributes in some way to your death – you cannot sue them for violation of constitutionally protected right to life,” said Karen Busby, a constitutional law expert from the University of Manitoba.

On the Winnipeg Free Press:

Karen Busby, Professor of Law, University of Manitoba, “You’d have to look at actual practice, but that’s on the road to the right direction, giving people a choice of what kind of prayer they want to offer.”
