CBA launches legal aid awareness campaign

The BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association today launched a campaign to build public support for legal aid.

The campaign includes a website that features videos of people talking about their experiences with legal aid, as well as fact sheets and online ads. The CBA has also prepared an analysis of the economic value of legal aid.

In a press release, the CBA said “the campaign is not going to be adversarial and is instead intended to provide the provincial government with the public support required to start rebuilding the system.”

CBA president Sharon Matthews will also be touring the BC interior and Vancouver Island later this year to talk about legal aid.
