Bencher Election 2019

    The StopSOP Team has put together a slate of candidates to run in the upcoming bencher election on a platform to revoke the Statement of Principles. Click this link to see their profiles.

    Voting begins mid-April and ends on April 30. If you are eligible to vote, you will receive an email from Computershare during the second week of April with instructions. 

    Since you will be voting in the privacy of your own office, completely confidentially, this is your chance to let the Law Society know how you REALLY feel about the compelled Statement of Principles!

    Vote for the StopSOP Slate (plus non-slate candidates we endorse) and ONLY these candidates, for maximum effectiveness. You are not limited to voting in your own region.
