Latimer Appeal Scheduled For 27 November 1996

16 October 1996—In November, 1994 a Saskatchewan Court convicted Robert Latimer of murdering his daughter Tracy Latimer. The Supreme Court of Canada will hear his appeal on 27 November 1996.

Once again, the onus will be on the community of people with disabilities to fight for justice for Tracy Latimer.

As CCD will not have standing in the courtroom, our organizations will need to position themselves with the media to be key commentators on the Latimer case.
