The Lower Mainland Local Government Association had their Annual General Meeting on May 12, 2021 and we are pleased to announce that motion R4 Updating BC’s Wrongful Death Laws was passed!

The motion will move onward to the UBCM Annual Conference in September 2021.

In their Annual Report & Resolutions Package, motion R4 Updating BC’s Wrongful Death Laws (page 34), was initiated by the Vancouver City Council, was up for endorsement to move onward to the UBCM Annual Conference, which takes place in September 2021. Our Society also wrote a letter to inform these councillors on the issue.

The endorsement, support, and recommendation to provincial government will send a clear message from the local level that this critical human rights work needs to get done by the province.
