6-Month Wait in the News
Since them we have continued to work to contact the media and share our stories when there are new developments. We are also reaching out to health publications in the United States to let Americans know that Ontario is the first jurisdiction in North America to put the 6-month wait on hiatus and to challenge their liver transplant centres to follow our lead.
Here's where it all began.
In January of 2015, Debra Selkirk announced her intention to fight the 6-month wait through a legal challenge.
The media response was immediate, as the story travelled across Canada through interviews on television and radio.
The story on Global News, shown at left, was one of them.
