I currently live in Victoria, BC, though I am originally from Yellowknife, NT.
I will be taking the challenge in solidarity and in allying with my clients. I am an articling student at The Law Centre in Victoria, BC. The Law Centre provides legal assistance to individuals who cannot afford a lawyer. Many of our clients are welfare recipients making their best efforts to get by on the current rates. I see people so busy surviving, they are left with little time or hope to change their positions. Though I can sympathize with my clients, I cannot empathize. I am grateful for this opportunity to educate myself through experience.
Thank-you for your efforts and commitment and I hope to meet you soon.
