The McGill Law community is invited to participate in the 10th annual Christie Community Bike Ride in support of the Native Women's Shelter (NWSM), which is the only only women’s shelter in Montreal that provides services exclusively to Aboriginal women and their children, with in-house programs and an outreach program.
The Christie Community Bike Ride was founded in 2009 to commemorate the legacy of McGill alumnus and Vancouver lawyer Dugald Christie. Christie was both a strong advocate for access to justice and an avid cyclist. In 2006, Christie began cycling across the country to convince our decision-makers of the necessity for justice system reform. Every year, McGill Law students bike 50 km around Montreal in his honour to raise funds for a local access to justice organization.
The organizers hope that you will join them on this fun bike ride in support of access to justice! Visit their Eventbrite page to register. Registration is $20 if you have a bike, or $35 if you do not have a bike and will need a rental. Coffee, treats, and a picnic lunch are included in the registration fee. Mostly, however, it includes a lot of fun!
