Chief Judge Hugh Stansfield (1957-2009)

I was saddened to hear about the death of the Chief Judge of the Provincial Court of British Columbia, Hugh Stansfield, from cancer on May 7, 2009.

Before his appointment as Chief Judge, he sat as Provincial Court Judge, and Associate Chief Judge, here in Kelowna, and was well liked and respected amoung our local bar.

You can read the Provincial Court press release announcing his passing here, and a short bio on the Canadian Bar Association, B.C. Branch website here. There will be a Special Sitting of the Court on Thursday, June 4, 2009 from 9:00 to 10:00 am in the Great Hall at the Law Courts, 800 Smithe Street, Vancouver.
