Vancouver School of Theology joins with the family and friends of Judge Alfred Scow in mourning his passing on February 26th, 2013. Judge Scow worked tirelessly in position as a lawyer, and later as a judge, in helping to address issues of concern to the aboriginal people in Canada and beyond, and to educate all Canadians about aboriginal people. He was the first person of aboriginal descent to graduate from law school in BC, the first aboriginal called to the bar in BC, and the first aboriginal judge appointed to the Provincial Court of BC.
Judge Scow was also a former member of VST’s Board of Governors.
More details regarding Judge Scow is available here, including time and date of the memorial services.
