Gillian Bennett took her own life at 11:00AM on August 18, 2014. The next day, Vancouver Sun journalist Denise Ryan wrote an article with video. Follow up articles appeared in many other media outlets, including Gary Mason's article in the Globe and Mail, a Global Television interview and a radio interview on CBC's The Current with Anna Maria Tremonti. On Jan 26, 2015, Global TV's "16 x 9" broadcast an episode about assisted suicide featuring some of Gillian Bennett's family members.
Gillian was successful in igniting a conversation about death and difficult end-of-life issues. Her family has received more than 1,000 emails. We wish to thank everyone for their participation in this conversation.
