THE ADVOCATE 299
VOL. 76 PART 2 MARCH 2018
J.V. Clyne, Esq. Chief Justice’s Chambers
President, Vancouver Bar Association Law Courts
c/o Messrs. Macrae, Montgomery & Clyne Vancouver, B.C.
602 West Hastings St.
Dear Mr. Clyne: March 22, 1943
The Vancouver bar is to be highly commended upon their active cooperation
with the Department of National Defence in respect to the assistance
to soldiers overseas requiring legal service, and in assisting their
dependents. This assistance has been made possible by the co-operation of
the various members of the bar. Anything that can be done to increase the
co-operation between members of the bar and to make known the work
they are doing, is of extreme value not only to the bar itself but to the public.
Your executive has shown no little courage and resolution in these times
in your venture to bring out a periodical, the nature of which I presume is
in promoting an esprit de corps as well as being informative and useful to the
profession. Such a periodical is long overdue, and I can assure you that if at
any time I can assist you in any way in the production of your periodical, I
will be only too glad to do so.
Yours very truly,
(Chief Justice of the Supreme Court)
To the Editor of “The Advocate” Minister of Pensions and National Health
Vancouver, B.C. Ottawa
Dear Sir: March 9, 1943
Mr. Rowe Holland has told me that the Vancouver Bar Association
is sponsoring the issue of a bar journal to be known, I believe, as “The
Advocate”, and that you expect to get out the first number soon.
May I tender my good wishes to my fellow-members in this endeavour
and bespeak for it—success.
(Minister of Pensions and National Health)
