Law Courts Inn
08/13/2020

Law Courts Inn

The Law Courts Inn was founded by directors of the Vancouver Bar Association. They wanted to bring the local legal profession together on a daily basis by establishing a dining and social club for lawyers and judges, modeled after the Inns of Court in London, England. Vancouver’s Inn has been open to the broader public for 40 years. Do you have a great memory from the Law Courts Inn -- an important connection made over lunch or a special moment spent overlooking the reflecting pool? Share your recollections and find out how you can help save this unique Vancouver venue. Our landlords are refusing to renew our lease. https://lawcourtsinn.com/save-the-inn/

A Letter from the Law Courts Inn Society:
07/25/2020

A Letter from the Law Courts Inn Society:

Dear Friends of the Law Courts Inn,

I am writing you to make you aware that after 40 years of serving our community, the Law Courts Inn restaurant may be in peril and closing to the public and legal profession as of September, 2020.

The Ministry of Citizens Services, without consultation or input from the users of the space, has decided not to renew the lease of the Law Courts Inn to the Lawyers Inn Society, which has operated the restaurant and public space in the Vancouver Courthouse for 40 years. Instead the provincial government has decided to turn this masterpiece of Vancouver’s most famous architect, Arthur Erickson, into a another office!

I have attached 2 letters which will give you some more idea in regards to our position and the government’s curt response. I am afraid we have exhausted many of our options and we are currently hoping to generate public outcry for the loss of this beautiful space to the public and short sightedness of the decision to turn it into offices.



I am asking for your support in opposing the closure. Please read the attached and make your views known to the Ministry of Citizens’ Services, copying [email protected]:

Assistant Deputy Minister

MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD - 2020 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING -- FEEDBACK REQUESTED

2020 has been an unprecedented year for both the VBA and the world. Due to public health restrictions arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, the events traditionally hosted by the VBA through the year have not been possible. In all likelihood, the VBA will also not be able to hold its AGM in the format we have all come to know and love - namely, an in-person banquet for over 500 members at the Hotel Vancouver.

The VBA Board would like to hear from members about the options being considered for the 2020 AGM and Board elections. We ask that members provide any feedback you may have by July 30, 2020 via email to [email protected] with the subject line "VBA AGM feedback".

Option 1 is to hold the AGM virtually and elect an incoming slate of 6 Board members, as in past years. Other organizations have transitioned to virtual AGM formats this year. If this option is selected, the election for Board positions would be facilitated via voting software.

Option 2 is to hold the AGM virtually and, by special resolution, extend the term of the current VBA Board by one year, until the 2021 AGM. A primary benefit of this option includes retaining institutional memory through this unprecedented year and into what we hope will be a recovery year in 2021. The VBA Board is willing to continue to volunteer their time for the additional year. If this option is selected, a special meeting to amend the bylaws would be held in the months prior to the AGM.

For either option, the Hyndman Award Committee has decided that the Peter S. Hyndman Mentorship Award will not be given out for the 2020 year.

Tour guides will take us on a two-hour walking tour through which we will learn about these immigrant communities, their struggles and successes, and the intersection of the communities.

For more information, see: https://www.straight.com/life/1242306/strathcona-walking-tour-highlights-contributions-vancouvers-early-immigrant-communities

Supreme Court - Request for Urgent Hearing

Notice to the Profession, the Public and the Media Regarding Civil and Family Proceedings

COVID-19: SUSPENSION OF REGULAR COURT OPERATIONS

Date: March 18, 2020

Effective March 19, 2020 and until further notice, the Honourable Chief Justice Hinkson has suspended regular operations of the Supreme Court of British Columbia at all of its locations to protect the health and safety of court users and to help contain the spread of COVID-19.

This direction replaces the Court’s announcement issued Friday, March 13, 2020.

I. ADJOURNMENT OF CIVIL AND FAMILY MATTERS

All civil and family matters scheduled for hearing between March 19, 2020 and May 1, 2020 are adjourned, unless directed otherwise by the Court. This automatic adjournment extends to all trials, conferences and chambers applications or other hearings currently scheduled for hearing before May 1, 2020.

II. THE COURT WILL HEAR ONLY ESSENTIAL AND URGENT MATTERS

While regular operations are suspended the Court will hear only essential and urgent matters.

The following family and civil matters are presumptively considered to be of an essential and urgent nature.

The Court has discretion to hear urgent matters other than those listed, and to decline to hear a matter listed.

III. ESSENTIAL AND URGENT FAMILY MATTERS

Essential and urgent matters in family proceedings include those in which the following relief is sought:

• Orders relating to the safety of a child or parent due to a risk of violence or immediate harm (e.g., a protection order, conduct orders, or exclusive possession of the home);

• Orders relating to the risk of removal of a child from the jurisdiction (e.g., relocation, non-removal, wrongful removal or retention of a child); and

• Orders relating to the well-being of a child (e.g., essential medical decisions, urgent issues relating to parenting time, contact or communication with a child that cannot reasonably be delayed).

IV. ESSENTIAL AND URGENT CIVIL MATTERS

Essential and urgent matters in civil proceedings include:

• Matters related to public health and safety and COVID-19, including:
o orders under the Quarantine Act; and
o orders under the Public Health Act.

• Matters where there is a prima facie urgency, including:
o refusal of treatment and end of life matters, including applications under the Health Care (Consent) and Care Facility (Admission) Act;
o detention of individuals, including under the Mental Health Act and the Adult Guardianship Act;
o emergency adult guardianship and committeeship orders, including under the Adult Guardianship Act and Patients Property Act;
o housing evictions, including interim stays of orders of possession under the Residential Tenancy Act;
o civil restraining orders;
o preservation orders;
o urgent injunction applications; and
o urgent orders in the nature of habeas corpus, certiorari, mandamus and prohibition.

V. PROCEDURES FOR URGENT MATTERS

The Court has established the following two-part procedure to facilitate the hearing of essential and urgent matters. First, the applicant will submit a request to the Court for an urgent hearing using an online form. Parties will then submit unfiled materials in order that the Court can assess the urgency of the matter. Second, if the Court determines that the matter is essential and urgent and a hearing is required, the Court will set a date and direct the parties to file their materials electronically in accordance with a modified process.

A. Requesting a Hearing

1. A request for the hearing of an urgent matter must be made by completing an online Request for Urgent Hearing form.
https://www.bccourts.ca/supreme_court/scheduling/Request_for_Urgent_Hearing/

2. Upon receipt of the request form, the Court will send the parties an email confirming receipt of the request form.

3. The parties must follow the instructions in the request acknowledgement email and provide relevant unfiled materials to assist with the Court’s determination as to whether the matter is of sufficient urgency to require a hearing. If the respondent’s unfiled materials are not received within a reasonable time, the Court will review the applicant’s request without the responding materials.

4. A judge of the Court will review the request form and related materials and make a determination as to whether the matter requires an urgent hearing.

B. Instructions for Filing Materials

5. If the judge determines that a hearing is required, the Court will set a hearing date and provide directions to the parties about filing and service of materials. Materials will be filed electronically, if possible.

C. Conduct of Hearing

6. Parties will appear by telephone where possible and appropriate, or by video where appropriate and available.

VI. LIMITATION PERIODS AND FILING DEADLINES

A. Filing Timelines under the Supreme Court Rules

Effective March 18, 2020, filing deadlines under the Supreme Court Civil Rules and the Supreme Court Family Rules are suspended until May 1, 2020.

B. Limitation Periods

Other statutory filing deadlines and limitation periods continue to apply. When the Court resumes regular operations, parties may request an extension of time for deadlines set out in other statutes, which the Court will determine on a case-by-case basis.

The Court will not hear applications for extensions of time until regular operations resume.

THE FOREGOING IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. ANY UPDATED DIRECTIONS WILL BE POSTED ON THE COURT’S WEBSITE.

As part of the Court’s efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia has ordered the suspension of all regular operations, effective immediately until further notice. All regular hearings are adjourned. Further details concerning urgent and emergency matters and the running of timelines will follow shortly.

Dear VBA members,

The VBA Executive Committee has decided to cancel tomorrow’s VBA Alpine Championship Ski Race in Whistler due to ongoing concerns surrounding the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In the past 48 hours, many participating firms have imposed restrictions on travel and attendance at large gatherings for their lawyers and staff. Alpine Canada also issued a statement late yesterday recommending the cancellation of all domestic ski races planned for the remainder of the ski season.

This has been a difficult decision for us to take and we realize that this will cause inconvenience to those who made plans to attend the Ski Race and to stay in Whistler this weekend. In the circumstances, however, the health and safety of our members must come first.

Whistler Blackcomb will process full refunds for the lift and race tickets. Please contact Andrea Pstoka at 604.905.2036 or email [email protected]. The Eventbrite fee is not refundable.

If you still want to use your discounted lift tickets, please contact Andrea Pstoka by 1:30 p.m. today. Further, the GM Race Center is still open if skiers and snowboarders wish to use it themselves.
