Supreme Court of Canada decision dated March 14, 1985.
This case addressed the issues of whether refusal of treatment is reasonable or not. The health care provider had recommended surgery, while the client did not want to proceed in that direction. The Insurer’s position was that the client’s refusal to proceed with surgery should be held against him.
The decision supported the client’s right to refuse treatment.
