Celebrating Pride Month at Foglers with Douglas Elliott

June 20, 2024


Today we had the pleasure of welcoming Douglas Elliott to the firm who spoke to us about “The LGBT Purge: Canada’s Journey from Injustice to Justice” and the important work of the LGBT Purge Fund | Le Fonds Purge LGBT.

Dr. Elliott was the lead counsel in the LGBT Purge class actions and is a member of the Board of Directors of the LGBT Purge Fund.  In addition to his numerous past awards, the Advocates’ Society will confirm on him the Award of Justice on June 26, 2024.

His presentation discussed the four phases of Canada’s LGBT Purge, and in particular, the role of lawyers in each phase.
