The B.C. Supreme Court is being asked to decide which of two groups legally represents the Victoria Truth Centre.
At stake is the future of the church, founded in 1898, and its 1.76-acre piece of prime property at 1201 Fort St. The church has been on that site since 1949.
Each group has its own elected board of directors.
One board was elected at an annual general meeting Feb. 28. It considers the other board invalid. The second board was elected March 6 and confirmed at an emergency meeting on Aug. 7.
The March group is planning an Aug. 28 meeting to discuss membership. It maintains some long-term church supporters are not allowed to belong to the centre.
The late Emma Smiley was the centre’s minister beginning in 1940. Smiley advocated tranquility, happiness and positivity in thought.- See more at: http://www.timescolo...h.CUtoX1xO.dpuf
