At yesterday’s sparsely attended (224 of the province’s estimated 12,000 lawyers were present) Annual General Meeting of the Law Society of British Columbia, an amended version of our member’s resolution calling for complete disclosure of bencher expenses was defeated by a vote of 77-97.

As others have pointed out, a number of current and former benchers voted against the resolution.  A report of the AGM can be found here.
