McCarthy Tétrault remembers Rebecca Ransome on Giving Tuesday 2016

On Giving Tuesday 2016, law firm McCarthy Tétrault hosted a lunch reception to raise funds for WCH’s Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Care Centre in honour and memory of Rebecca Ransome — a young employee of the firm who was murdered by her boyfriend in 2013. The event raised nearly $7,000.
