Firm statement on events in the Middle East

National (October 16, 2023) ‑ Like so many around the world, members of BLG have been directly and deeply affected by the war unfolding in the Middle East.

BLG unequivocally condemns the acts of terror and violence committed by Hamas against Israel. We stand in solidarity with all those who are experiencing suffering, loss and violence in Israel and Gaza.

As Canada’s Law Firm, we stand for justice, human rights and the rule of law. We strongly denounce all acts of terrorism against innocent civilians.

At BLG, we promote a culture of diversity and inclusion that is free from antisemitism, Islamophobia and other forms of discrimination.

We have made a donation to the UJA Federation's Emergency Appeal for the people of Israel and Canadian Red Cross Middle East Humanitarian Crisis Appeal.

These donations will help deliver aid at a critical time. You may join our efforts by donating to:
