The BCCLA has been supporting a student group at the University of Victoria that is opposed to abortion. The group has been delisted as a campus organization as a result of posters they put up and a forum they held on the issue. The BCCLA helped the organization access legal advice and file legal challenge. After the student group filed the legal challenge in BC Supreme Court, the group was reinstated as a student club in good standing. The group was also repaid all the funding wrongly denied it in the past. The parties have agreed that the lawsuit will stand in abeyance rather than be withdrawn, with the BCCLA appearing as an intervener in the event that it is necessary to proceed with the case.
