Borden Ladner Gervais challenges the world of accounting
TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - Borden Ladner Gervais LLP enthusiastically took up the ALS Canada ice bucket challenge with BLG partners and employees in every office
across Canada getting wet for this important charity. Canada's largest
law firm welcomed the challenge issued by another legal firm. BLG
staff, alumni and friends donated $13,805 dollars to Team BLG and The
BLG Foundation contributed another $5,000 for a total of $18,805. To

"This cause is of particular importance to the firm as it helps to
honour our respected colleague, Michael McNaughton, who passed away
from ALS in November, 2012," said Sean Weir, national managing partner and CEO. "ALS is a devastating disease that
at this moment has no cure. As a firm we recognize our responsibility
to make important social contributions in the community and embrace
this opportunity to support ALS Canada."
To continue the momentum of this successful campaign, the BLG team has
extended the challenge to the world of accounting and nominates BDO,
Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Grant Thornton, KPMG and
PricewaterhouseCoopers to answer the challenge.
