Delta Hospice AGM Resumes Saturday April 2nd
Let's Win This!
It's Only Through Your Vote that We Make it Happen!
It is within our reach to block these bylaw changes, elect new directors and fight to have an in-person meeting, BUT you must attend and VOTE.
This is the pathway to restore the DHS assets and income that belong to local supportive care, grief and bereavement counselling. It is essential that you attend the second half of the DHS AGM this Saturday, April 2nd at 11:00 am. The first half of the agenda was completed last weekend, so we will move quickly into the vote for the Take Back Delta Hospice endorsed directors and the vote against bylaw changes to redirect the purpose of the society away from local needs.
The next steps are critical:
√ Vote YES to the Take Back Delta Hospice candidates (see below for more info). Vote NO to all other candidates.
√ Vote NO to any bylaw changes. We only need 1/3 of the votes to stop these changes!
Make your plan to participate:
Log in using the same unique link as last week. This link was sent to DHS Members from email@example.com. If you didn't attend the last meeting but are a current member, you can still participate this Saturday. Each member will need to use a different device (i.e. computer, laptop, iPad, smartphone, etc.) to join the meeting.
Call in to 1-877-274-0529; once connected, enter #20. You will need to call in from the phone number on file with your DHS membership.
Elections: Keep this list of candidates nearby to ensure you vote correctly. Vote YES for the 7 candidates supported by Take Back Delta Hospice. Vote NO to all other candidates.
Bylaws: This is the most important vote of the AGM, and it is at the end of the meeting. Vote against any bylaw changes. If we can defeat any changes to the bylaws, the next AGM will need to be in-person. The next AGM will be our opportunity to take control of DHS and vote out the board.
Issues: If you have problems logging on or accessing your unique login link, you can contact Converso at 1-800-559-7457 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Delta Hospice Patients Must Move as Board Refuses to Work with Fraser Health
VANCOUVER -- Patients at a hospice in Delta, B.C. will have their final days and weeks disrupted by a move to other facilities because the Delta Hospice Society Board refuses to work with Fraser Health on a transition plan as the health authority takes over operations at the facility.Read More
The Delta Hospice Story
The Hospice we know today are two buildings located in Ladner, B.C. beside Delta Hospital on Fraser Health Authority lands. The Delta Cares Capital Campaign was widely supported by the community, business and major donors and the Province of B.C., and the funds raised built the Irene Thomas Hospice and Harold and Veronica Savage Centre for Supportive Care, which were officially opened in January of 2010.

Supporting our Delta Hospice. Community rallies and marches to Delta City Hall. June 13, 2020, Delta, BC
We believe these actions by the current DHS Board are both inconsistent with the Society’s moral responsibility to serve the entire community without discrimination and incompatible with the founding principles of the Society upon which its brand, its assets and its goodwill have been built since 1991.
With the current Society and its Board functioning under the Bylaws and the Societies Act of BC, we believe our ends are best achieved through actions to require compliance with the provisions of the Bylaws and the Act. Successful intervention by the courts can effectively hold the door open for community members to get involved and to become members and elect a Board of Directors that will be accountable to them.
