Weird and Wacky Wednesdays: Volume Thirty Six

This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we look at why you shouldn’t steal. Let me put it this way… it’s shitty. Then, in examining another case of theft, we look at why you shouldn’t claim you have a mental disorder even when you’re overwhelmed by cuteness.

Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada, But Didn’t: Episode 56

This week on Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada, But Didn’t! we address the issues of mandatory minimum sentencing.

We also get into the case of a drug-sniffing dog that failed to sit down in a vehicle search, and how the use o fone’s vehicle weighed heavily in the Charter analysis that excluded 27,500 fentanyl pills.

Driving Law with Kyla Lee: Episode Forty

This week on the Driving Law podcast, I am joined by Thomas Harding of the Trial Lawyers Advocacy Group. We discuss the so-called “meat-chart” used by ICBC to assess injury claims, and the new policy that involved revoking all previous offers and replacing them with lower, one-time-only offers. This will likely have serious consequences for ICBC, as Mr. Harding explains.
