Petition: Restore legal aid in BC

West Coast LEAF and PIVOT Legal Society are asking individuals and organizations to sign their online petition to restore legal aid in BC.

According to the petition:

The recent continuation of cuts to legal aid in BC will have a devastating impact on women, particularly those living in poverty, women of colour, Aboriginal women, and other marginalized women. These cuts are taking place at a time when Canada is already being criticized for its failure to meet its international obligation to ensure that women have equal access to the justice system.
