This February the BCACG has initiated legal action against the BC provincial government. Summary:
After considerable research and discussion with legal experts and historians, BCACG has engaged the services of A. Cameron Ward & Company as legal counsel and has selected a course of action. When the government is in receipt of the official documents, a public announcement will be made as to the nature of the legal action. At this point it can be said that this will be an action on behalf of all BC charities and non-profit organizations that have been, or are currently, recipients of gaming funds. It will have as its goals: first, the reinstatement of gaming funding to those organizations that have had their funds reduced or eliminated as a result of the recent provincial budget; and second, the guarantee from government that adequate funds from gaming will be allocated to charities and non-profit organizations so that no such cuts will occur in the future. Please donate whatever you or your organization can afford to help us achieve a successful outcome to this very difficult situation. (No gaming funds can be used to help support this legal action.)
All donation information is strictly confidential.
