According to the National Post, in the Canadian city of Toronto an Orthodox Jewish family has filed suit claiming that under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms they should be able to require a hospital to continue to treat their 25-year old son who was declared brain dead.  The family says that their religious beliefs reject the concept of brain death in favor of the end of heart beat as the test.  The court ordered the patent to temporarily be kept on life support while the case is pending.
