Lawyers on Bikes Offering Free Legal Advice Today

About 50 Vancouver lawyers are cycling to Victory Square this morning to offer free legal advice to residents of the Downtown Eastside. The event is organized by the Access Pro Bono Society of B.C. and volunteers expect to provide legal advice to about 150 low-income clients.  The ride is in memory of Dugald Christie, who was killed in 2006 while cycling across Canada to raise awareness about cuts to legal aid funding.

I would love to hear your views on this post so please leave a comment below. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide any legal advice through these comments. If you need legal advice, please contact one of the pro bono resources listed on the right side of the Rights & Remedies blog.
