President's Message 

By Corinne Rivers

Spring is finally here so we can all add yard work to our already busy schedules. Persian New Year celebrates Spring in manner that probably reflects the way we all feel about its’ arrival.

Spring also brings the Association’s Annual General Meeting, scheduled this year to take place on  May 3. Please reserve the date. Spring is a time for renewal and so too, the Association Board renews itself eachyear. Please let Wayne Kitchen know if you are interested in helping to manage the affairs of the Association.

As always the Association is busy with CPD and other activities for your edification and benefit. I also encourage you to visit The FOLA website to see how your Association advocates in your interests with the Law Society and both Federal and Provincial governments. Don’t forget the Provincial election coming up, and let prospective MPPs know about the issues in the court house and the administration of justice. If they better understand what is happening on the ground they will better serve us all in government. In the mean time enjoy the new warmth promised by April’s arrival.
