Dear friends, family and community,
As many of you know, I was part of the Calgary Legal Guidance "Family" for some time and continue to be committed to their mandate to support the most vulnerable populations with their legal needs and offering access to the legal system by giving free legal advice through their evening clinics and other programs in the city.
Access to the court system is essential. Without access to the court system those individuals and companies that can afford to pay for their legal services will be heard while those not unable to file the proper documentations will not be heard.
While access to the court does not mean that there will be "access to justice", what is important to remember that without Calgary Legal Guidance and Legal Aid those that are served may not have the opportunity to get any other representation.
Please support this important organization and programs in our city in whatever way you can.
With Best Regards,
