The Law Society of B.C.’s move to reverse its original decision to approve the future Trinity Western University School of Law is a travesty.
What does this say about the thousands of TWU graduates, the lawyers, teachers, doctors, nurses and business owners who are contributing to their communities?
The Law Society ‘benchers’ are absolutely wrong on this one. What’s more, why doesn’t the LSBC just do away with the ‘benchers’ anyway, and put all of their decisions up for popular vote?
The law school doesn’t even open until 2016. So when did the lawyers of this province decide that the basic tenant of law is now “guilty until proven innocent”? They made this decision without a shred of evidence.
There has not been one complaint against a TWU-graduated teacher since the 1991 the Supreme Court ruled on this same matter in regards to the TWU teachers program.
The LSBC owes an apology to the 25,000 TWU graduates and to the students who are currently studying at Trinity. Religious and other minorities – take careful note. Should you be discriminated against, don’t go to the lawyers of B.C. for help. They are the ones who have perpetrated it!
