GL of British Columbia & Yukon Expels PGM Unrau

In the last half hour, I've received numerous messages from across the country that MW William Unrau, Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of British Columbia & Yukon 2004-2005, has been expelled for "Masonic offenses" by a vote of the assembled Grand Lodge on June 19th. The letter has been sent to all jurisdictions in amity with them. (Click image to enlarge.)

One possible indicator of the situation may be discovered by a Google search of his name and "grand lodge." Several Canadian Supreme Court cases between Unrau and various members of the BCY GL turn up, dating back to 2005.


  1. Interesting. A defamation lawsuit resulting in A PGM's expulsion. Sad. Very sad. From reading the case, it was petty, but his reason was just. In the end he loses it all.

    This seems to be the origin of the entire ordeal. The PGM's agenda during his term.

    1. Hi Aaron:

      I'm sorry, but what are we supposed to be looking for in those speeches? What's clear to you has somehow escaped me.
