Bamberger v. Vancouver (Board of Parks and Recreation)

NST acted for the petitioners in this judicial review of two orders of the General Manager of the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, while defending a petition for an injunction brought by the Park Board. Together with co-counsel at Arvay Finlay LLP, Julia Riddle successfully argued that decisions fundamentally affecting the lives of people who are homeless should not be made without hearing from those persons, and that the court should not condone by injunction the displacement of people who are causing no harm and have nowhere else to go.
