This is an excerpt from the Provincial Court of BC eNews article from April 18, 2017

"On April 6, 2017 Chief Judge Thomas Crabtree kicked off BC Law Week activities with the Court’s second live Twitter Town Hall. As he had the previous year, the Chief Judge spent two hours tweeting responses to questions and comments tweeted to #AskChiefJudge. 

Including questions sent in advance, the Court received 176 tweets (77 questions and 69 comments) and responded with 129 answers and 9 comments. Several questions received more than one reply, as the Chief Judge included links to reference material – articles, reports and judgments – to supplement his 140-character tweets. Justice and law-related groups were invited to share helpful information and resources during the Town Hall and their contributions accounted for many of the comments."
