Government Correspondence

The purpose of this page is to track correspondence from 2017 onward with the Premier and the Attorney General’s office, which is the ministry responsible for the Family Compensation Act.

Our intention is to facilitate openness, continuity, and accountability to the public from this government in the BC Wrongful Death Law Reform Society’s efforts to replace the FCA with the Wrongful Death Accountability Act.

In the meantime, how many more people will need to die from the same preventable wrongful deaths?

How many more families will have their lives ruined without access to justice while the NDP bides its time without any commitment to a timeline in implementing the modern first class legislation that the BC Wrongful Death Law Society has proposed in the Wrongful Death Accountability Act?
