1. “So the doctors who made the mistakes that led to her death had no repercussions. There were no suspensions, there were no firings, there were no re-trainings—there was nothing that was done.” — Catherine, mother of Heidi Klompas

In Their Name is a not-for-profit organization registered under the Society Act of BC*. Its goal is to change the law in BC, which currently denies justice to the survivors of children, the elderly and many people with disabilities killed by the careless or intentional acts of another. Only the lives of income-earners have value under British Columbia law.

The families who have shared their stories know that they will not benefit from a new law. Yet, they are campaigning for wrongful death law reform to make BC a safer, more just province.

Each story features a BC family that was denied access to a trial because their loved one was not a breadwinner. These families did not get the answers they deserved. No compensation was available for their loss—no support for counselling, time off work, or resources to move on. The injustice of the wrongful death continues to cause suffering.

IN THEIR NAME urges the provincial government to adopt a wrongful death act that truly respects the needs of all British Columbians.
