Let’s Talk Insurance
I am happily surprised that the next provincial election may be centered on insurance. Let’s face it, insurance is not a sexy issue that people tend to want to discuss, but it is something we all need. And I guess I am: I see people suffering every day after they are in an accident. I…

Hazing and “Rites Of Passage”
Recently some Ryerson graduates were chastised in the press for a hazing stunt. These students will receive no punishment for forcing their classmates to crawl through slush in their underwear.

One of Dwight Duncan’s legacies has been slashing benefits for those injured in a motor vehicle accident from $100,000 to $50,000 and for minor injuries $3,500.00.

Home Ownership
Sun Media It is curious to me that people as homeowners do not know what their responsibility is to the community when owning a home. You may think well this is my property and I can do as I wish, but this is not the case. For example, if you do not salt or plow…

Opportunities In Law
The legal profession used to be a very close-knit community. Not many women or people of any ethnic decent were seen and it was limited to those that go to law school. The community has changed.
