As quoted, April 9, 2019. Vancouver Sun:
VICTORIA — B.C.’s attorney general is encouraging people to make a will, especially because most residents with dependent children do not have one.
David Eby says that’s the reason the province has proclaimed the upcoming week as Make a Will Week.
He says in a release that people without a will would have their estate distributed according to the law, not necessarily how they would have wished.
Eby says important decisions such as who would raise children are part of a will, and not having that legal document may lead to potentially time-consuming and costly court action.
