THE ADVOCATE V O L . 7 5 P A R T 2 M A R C H 2 0 1 7 311 Andrea Boscariol, John Frederick Grieve, Kelly Kathleen Connell, Peter Masters Favell, Christopher Scott Johnson, Douglas Richard Egerton Lester, Barbara Jean Norell, Craig Anthony (Tony) Wilson, Ian Terence Davis, Lorna Ann Pawluk, Melissa (Lisa) Anne Peters, Jennifer Chow, Elizabeth Sharon Liu, Michael James Yawney, William Laurence Scott, Sheila Marie Tucker, Janet Jacy Wingson, Nitya Iyer, Robert Bruce Ellis Hallsor, Charlotte Aggie Salomon, Corinne Lynn Swystun, Andrew David Gay, Sean Travis Pihl, Tina Louise Dion, Corinn Mary Bell and David MacGregor Layton (now all Q.C.s).
