About W. Glen How & Associates

      Glen How is advocate of extraordinary courage, unflinchingly asserting the rights of an unpopular group with unorthodox beliefs against the often oppressive power of the state. His work on behalf of the Jehovah’s Witnesses has benefitted them, of course. But his contribution to law is much greater than that. In the history of Canadian civil liberties, Glen How occupies a position of unparalleled importance, not only for his personal courage, resourcefulness and persistence, but for the enormous legacy of civil libertarian principles that his work has left behind.

      Award for Courageous Advocacy presented to W. Glen How, The American College of Trial Lawyers, Introduction by Lively Wilson, September 8, 1997, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
