We are sad to announce the passing of Allan Parker, former executive director of Access Pro Bono and good friend of the BCCPD. Allan was a poverty law lawyer with the community law office in Nanaimo and with the Legal Services Society for many years. He had a passion for law and social justice and was an excellent teacher. He was very supportive of community advocacy and taught advocates around the province the skills they needed to the best job possible. He was known for his dry humour, thoroughness and commitment to justice.
Our condolences to Allan’s family, friends and colleagues at Access Pro Bono. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 23 at 1:00 pm at Gilmore Park United Church, 8060 No. 1 Rd., Richmond, BC.
