The court battle for a Six Nations girl, who rejected chemotherapy in favour of alternative treatment, has been extended.

The province has now been granted a May 1 deadline to appeal the controversial court ruling that allowed the girl to seek alternative treatments.
Ontario’s Attorney General has not provided any details on what grounds it plans to use in its appeal.
“The parties to these proceedings have agreed to a further extension of the appeal period to May 1, 2015,” said spokesperson Brendan Crawley in a statement. “The family, the Government of Ontario and Six Nations are continuing to discuss the matter.”
The girl who cannot be named due to a publication ban, made national headlines last year when an Ontario judge ruled that she had the constitutional right to use traditional medicine.
This is now the fourth time the province has been granted a new deadline for a possible appeal.
