Very few British Columbians know that children, the elderly and many disabled people are considered “worthless” if killed by someone else’s wrongdoing in BC. Change begins with public awareness.

The law in British Columbia will not change without your help. The fact that the law in our province unfairly discriminates against non-breadwinners is not well known. Those who are aware most often became so through tragedy, having come face-to-face with this injustice after the wrongful death of a loved one.

Our campaign depends on the voices of British Columbians.
