This month’s first spotlight is Winston Sayson, Q.C. Winston was a trial Crown counsel at the BC Prosecution Service before his retirement. He is a current FACL BC member.
1. What is something not many people know about you?
I enjoy Filipino Martial Arts. Arnis sticks, knives, and sharp-edged weapons thrill me! :-)
2. How did you first get involved with FACL?
I recall joining the first FACL BC dinner when Judge Maryka Omatsu spoke to our new group. This eventually led to me being the speaker for FACL's third annual gala in 2014.
3. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
I would be kinder to myself and look after my mental health. I would learn to stop working non-stop and find a better work-life balance.
4. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
The annual galas of FACL BC are my favourite events. I think the mini-documentary, "But I Look Like a Lawyer", is one of the most impactful and significant initiatives of FACL BC.
