Grounded TV talks to the youngest member of this year’s Vancouver Magazine Power 50 list, David Eby.  Eby is the 33-year-old Executive Director of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association. An adjunct professor of law at the University of British Columbia, David is also the President of the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network and a research associate with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. David has appeared at all levels of Court in British Columbia, and co-represented United Native Nations at the provincial Inquiry into the death of Frank Paul, a homeless aboriginal man who froze to death after being left in an alley by police.  Here Grounded TV interviews Eby about Olympic protests and how the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association works to protect the rights of all citizens, not just a few.
