Syd Thompson Community Service Award presented to Leo McGrady

Throughout his career, Leo taught labour law and advocacy courses at the Faculty of Law at UBC, as well as a range of labour law and human rights courses to trade union members in Capilano University’s Labour Studies Program, SFU Labour Studies Program, and for the Vancouver and District Labour Council. He has also published approximately 15 editions of a guide to the law of protests since 1972, as well as taught workshops in the law of protests throughout BC, Ontario, and Québec. He notes that some of the most important rights that are recognized in society today have been achieved in large part through civil disobedience and protest.

Stan Lanyon, former Chair, Labour Relations Board, and Arbitrator

Leo, you are the longest serving trade union counsel in this province. You have seen and done everything, whether before boards, arbitrations, or the Courts. You have written and taught more than any other trade union lawyer.

However what makes your contribution even more singular, is your commitment to free speech, the right of assembly, and civil disobedience. This combination of personal and professional achievements makes you unique, not only in the history of trade union counsel, but certainly throughout the profession as a whole.
