Scope and content
This series contains records from Ian Waddell's early career in Vancouver. Files include his time as the Legal Director for the Community Legal Assistance Society (a non-profit storefront law office located in Vancouver's east side that's generally believed to be the first community law office in the province) and participation with the Legal Services Commission and Consumer Action League, which also championed community and low-income access to legal support.
Records related to Waddell's involvement with the Alcohol and Drug Commission, which worked provincially to propose policies for regulation and treatment, and the Family Law Commission (specifically, a working group looking into a unified family court) are the majority of this series.
Files for related interests are also in the series. Records include correspondence, reports, newsletters, conference proceedings, research, speeches and lectures, press clippings, legislation, notes, minutes and agendas.
