MLA Ralph Sultan
Ralph Sultan, MLA for West Vancouver-Capilano, has met with The BC Wrongful Death Law Reform Society on June 12th, 2019 and was receptive to the Society’s call for legislative reform of our discriminatory wrongful death laws, which unlike every other province in Canada have yet to be modernized. Ralph Sultan previously proposed amendments to the Family Compensation Act with the intention to copy Alberta’s Fatal Accident Act. The legislation he tabled did not pass.
Under our current legislation, only those who had an income + dependants have worth under the law, leaving many, especially children, seniors, and the disabled worthless when they are killed by the neglectful, or wrongful actions of another. Please petition Ralph Sultan now for further feedback on public support for this issue»
