In the Federal Court action
Mr. Arvay is a well-known and highly respected advocate who has been counsel in numerous high-profile and ground-breaking constitutional and human rights cases. More information about Mr. Arvay is available at his firm’s website: http://www.arvayfinlay.com/lawyers/j-arvay.htm.
I am very happy that the Court saw fit to order the Attorney General to fund counsel for me and now to have the assistance, advice and representation of such capable counsel.
With regard to my employment situation
Since the action was launched, many inquiries have arrived from members of the public asking how they might help. The Edgar Schmidt Legal Defence and Support Fund, a legal trust, has been established to respond to these requests and to provide a means for people who wish to do so to help with my employment-related legal expenses and loss of income. More information is available at www.charterdefence.ca/supportdonate.html. Quite simply, I would appreciate the support of members of the public who wish to help with these expenses and losses.
