British Columbians seeking accountability for the harms caused by COVID-19 restrictions, which were ordered by Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, are in court looking to move forward with a class action lawsuit challenging B.C.'s provincial declaration of a state of emergency.
The proposal for the class action suit, which will also seek damages, is brought on by a non-profit and secular organization called the Canadian Society for the Advancement of Science in Public Policy (CSASPP).
