Hong Guo, a former mayoral candidate in Richmond, B.C., has been disbarred by the Law Society of B.C. after being found ungovernable and incapable of rehabilitating her professional conduct. Guo was previously suspended for one year after being found guilty of professional misconduct, which allowed her bookkeeper to steal $7.5 million in clients’ funds. The panel cited multiple misconduct violations, including a conflict of interest in a real estate deal. Guo argued for a one-year suspension instead of disbarment, but the tribunal determined that disbarment was necessary to protect the public. Guo’s law firm’s website is offline.
