OTTAWA (Reuters) – Obese people have the right to two seats for the price of one on flights within Canada, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on Thursday.
This raises interesting issues of civil rights, ethics and practicalities.
Should obese people be given the same privileges as other disabled people ?
Should we deny these privileges to obese people who a doctor thinks could heal themselves by dieting ?
Remember the obesity pandemic is increasing so these questions are becoming ever more relevant!
