LL, Here is the response from BC Civil Liberties Association

LL, did a CLAS lawyer get in touch with you?

(CLAS stands for Community Legal Assistance Society -- http://www.clasbc.net )

Here is the reply I got back from BCCLA:

Thanks for your e-mail. Difficult for us to follow up on this given privacy issues will not allow hospital staff to release names of patients to us even if we had the resources to look into this and the person’s full name. CLAS provides legal support under contract in mental health detention cases, and this individual surely has a CLAS lawyer representing him/her on possible release. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
Best,
Dave
