West Coast Environmental Law Association is a registered sponsor under the Elections Act (604)684-7378.
Because of the possibility that environmental and legal commentary by the West Coast Environmental Law Association might be interpreted as election advertising under the broad definition found in BC’s Elections Act, the West Coast Environmental Law Association has registered as a third party elections advertiser. The West Cost Environmental Law Association, which maintains the Environmental Law Alert blog and publishes West Coast’s legal e-brief newsletter, is a registered sponsor under the Elections Act (604)684-7378.
Our sister organisation, the West Coast Environmental Law Research Foundation does not intend to engage in election advertising during the campaign period prior to the 2013 BC election. To this end we have removed links to past media releases and publications from our home page, and will not be posting new media releases on our site until after the election. If you wish to access archived materials you may search for them using our Resources page.
