President Craig Ferris, QC has issued the following statement:

There has been a disturbing rise in anti-Asian racism arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. I would like to be very clear that we at the Law Society say that racism, in any form, has no place in Canada or British Columbia, in Vancouver or in our legal system.

The Law Society of British Columbia condemns these acts of racism and will do our part to ensure that British Columbians are not subject to these sorts of horrendous attacks.

Our strength as Canadians comes from our strong, multicultural society. These acts are not Canadian, and they cannot be tolerated in any form whatsoever.
