The CRA has recently proposed annulment of the registration of Dying with Dignity Canada (DWD), a Canadian registered charity. In terms of full disclosure I am a legal counsel to DWD. Here is a note from DWD and a statement from DWD.
Here is some recent media coverage of the proposed annulment of DWD's registered status:
