Welcome!

This site is a personal project of Colin Lachance and was created for the purpose of ensuring that his fellow Law Society of Ontario licensees had sufficient information about Bencher candidates to make informed decisions in the April 2019 election.

The site seeks to provide licensees an opportunity to learn about qualified candidates outside their immediate circles, and to provide candidates an opportunity to promote awareness of their priorities.

It is not authorized by or affiliated with the Law Society of Ontario. The LSO’s official election page can be found here: https://lso.ca/about-lso/governance/bencher-election-2019
