Canadian Supreme Court rejects appeal on mercury fillings

The Supreme Court of Canada has unanimously rejected a legal appeal from a mother who claims that she and her children were harmed by mercury-based amalgam fillings according to news reports.

Zsuzsanna Holland represented herself during a lengthy battle through British Columbia's lower courts, arguing unsuccessfully that 17 mercury-based fillings poisoned her and her children after she had dental work in 1982.

She had hoped the Supreme Court would hear her case, but the court has now dismissed the appeal. In addition, Holland is responsible for the costs incurred by the numerous parties named in the civil case.
