When: May 12, 2023, 9:30 – 11:00 AM PT
- Paul LeBlanc, Barrister & Solicitor
- Sarah Runyon, Partner at Marion & Runyon
The panelists will discuss how parents’ counsel can use the Charter in family policing cases, otherwise known as child protection cases. This workshop will identify reviewable decisions, concerns regarding the disclosure of medical records under section 96 of the Child, Family and Community Service Act (CFCSA) as it relates to section 8 of the Charter, the procedure to initiate an application for Charter costs, and the constitutional implications of the “safety plan.”
Participants may claim up to 1.5 hours of CPD with the Law Society of BC.
