A London man suffering from an incurable neurological disease has filed a massive lawsuit after health officials allegedly will not provide him with an assisted home care team and instead offered him medically assisted death.

42 year old Roger Foley says that a government selected home care provider had left him with injuries and food poisoning. After that, Foley was sent to London’s Victoria hospital where he has been kept for two years. He is suing the hospital, several health agencies and the attorneys General of Ontario and Canada with the hope to set up and manage a home care team and leave the hospital.

According to Foley's statement, the only two options given to him are a “forced discharge” from the hospital “to work with contracted agencies that have failed him” or medically assisted death.

None of the allegations made in Foley's lawsuit have yet to be tested in court.

Ontario's Progressive Conservatives say former leader Patrick Brown will not be eligible to run in the riding he was nominated in for the province's spring election.

The party's provincial nominations committee says in a statement that Brown will not be allowed to run in Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte.

The announcement comes as Brown says he will not be running in the spring election after much thought.

Brown stepped down as leader in January amid sexual misconduct allegations, which that he vehemently denies.

He then briefly tried to reclaim his old job, but bowed out of the race last month, saying his bid was taking a toll on family and friends.

After a turbulent party convention last Saturday, the Conservatives picked former Toronto city councillor Doug Ford as their new leader.

Ontario voters go to the polls on June 7.
