Municipal elections mean busy times for Provincial Court judges

Posted to: 

Around the province Provincial Court judges are volunteering to spend their evening hours administering oaths of office to people elected to city councils and school boards. For just a few examples - on northern Vancouver Island Judges Douglas Cowling, Ronald Lamperson, Justine Saunders, Roderick Sutton and colleagues are all administering oaths of office to recently elected members of city, town and village councils, as well as school, municipal and district boards.

Last week Judge Dennis Morgan swore in Quesnel School Trustees - and then Mayor and Councillors this week. Like his colleagues elsewhere in B.C., Judge Morgan also speaks to students at all levels, including elementary students participating in mock trials, and this fall to the Law 12 class at Correlieu Secondary School and the criminology class at the College of New Caledonia.
