Kailin Che Interviewed by Breakfast Television and Quoted in Peace Arch “Back-to-School COVID Lawsuit” Article

Kailin Che was recently quoted in Tracy Holmes’ Peace Arch News article regarding a lawsuit filed in White Rock, British Columbia over the province’s back-to-school plan. The article “White Rock dad files suit against health, education ministries over back-to-school COVID plan” details White Rock’s back-to-school COVID plan, including the guidelines set for schools to open in September with cohorts up to 120 secondary level students and up to 60 elementary students.

Kailin, who is working on the case for Early Sullivan, explained why the firm took the case.

“Everyone in BC has an interest in seeing the province safe and healthy,” Che told PAN by email.

“We cannot reopen the economy and schools with insufficient measures in place. We cannot do nothing, and expect things to be okay. The old adage better safe than sorry rings more true during these exceptional times more than ever. It costs very little for the government to take the recommended precautions to keep schools safe.”

She noted that Early Sullivan Wright Gizer & McRae is also representing a B.C. doctor in a case filed a few weeks prior “dealing with similar concerns but on a broader level (not exclusive to schools).”
