EDMONTON — Robert Latimer has been granted permission to attend a panel debate in the United Kingdom on end-of-life issues.
Latimer says the discussion is being organized by Oxford University and will feature eight panellists.
The Saskatchewan farmer is on parole after being given a life sentence for second-degree murder in the death of his severely disabled 12-year-old daughter Tracy. Tracy died of carbon monoxide poisoning after being put in a truck that had a hose fed from the exhaust into the cab.
Latimer admitted what he did, but said he wanted to end her suffering from the chronic, excruciating pain of cerebral palsy.
He continues to say that he did nothing wrong and hopes people attending the panel discussion realize how, in his words, “crooked” the Canadian justice system has been in dealing with his case.
