BILL WINNING is standing as a candidate for election to the NSW Legislative Council on 23rd March 2019.
Bill has worked in the family business (Winning Appliances) and in the property market for 40 years.
Throughout my life I have seen family members, friends and colleagues suffer immense pain at the end of their lives. I believe individuals should have the right to die with dignity and not have to suffer or resort to taking their own lives without government consent.
I have also known people who have chosen to travel to Switzerland to end their lives legally rather than endure the end stage of their terminal illness. This creates an unnecessary emotional and financial burden on families and I believe the choice of a peaceful death, surrounded by loved ones should be a legal option in Australia.
