The McGill Law community is invited to participate in the 13th annual Christie Community Bike Ride in support of the First Peoples Justice Centre of Montreal (CJPPM).
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 in Ottawa of the necessity for justice system reform. He was tragically struck and killed by a vehicle four months after the start of his journey. Every year, McGill Law students and other members of the community 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 bike ride in support of access to justice! Register and get more information on the Google Docs form. Registration is $25 via Canada Helps.
Event details and required precautions will be emailed within 48 hours after registration. If you have any question, contact the organizers at christiebikeride [at] gmail.com.
