  1. It's posted again. Ten positions this time. Looks like they might have DROPPED the salary... Or I'm misremembering. Eta: NM. Looks like someone referenced salary of $79k above. So marginal drop if any...
  2. TWU - The Big Show

    Anyone else find this interview unseemly https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/supreme-court-justice-offers-explanation-for-lgbtq-decision/article35870614/?ref=https://www.theglobeandmail.com&cmpid=rss1&click=sf_globefb&service=mobile
  3. TWU - The Big Show

    SCC provided a news release today explaining that it was a scheduling issue...
  4. Vancouver robes women's 8

    https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/bnc/clo/6100319540.html from my late night Craigslist prowls.
  5. Bencher's Interview

    My bencher told me the original purpose was to make sure you're not a communist. I told him i was not a communist. Then he told me just not to take money from the trust account and everything else can be recovered from.
  6. WCAT vice chair positions

  7. Breaking a clerkship?

    Many courts have spares. I would speak directly with the hiring coordinator. They're very helpful. Really you're probably making someone's day by stepping away.
  8. The robots cometh: http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-39205935
  9. Alternative JD Careers--No articling

    Article and then become an administrative decision maker. All you do is write. No forms. No drafting contacts. Just lovely prose all day.
  10. https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/bc-critics-slam-funding-cuts-to-renters-protection-agency/article34198149/?ref=http://www.theglobeandmail.com&service=mobile Less funding. Seems reasonable
  11. programs with a focus on anti-oppressive politics

    My manfriend came from less extreme circumstances but still far from privileged and is now a professional, but there's no doubt that he had to work harder than me and had way less margin of error to deal with than me. Lack of privilege isn't the same as not being in the race, just running a harder course with more rabid unicorns chasing you. Also he's white and I'm a minority. So he's got some different privilege than me. (Aka no one mistakes him for a local prostitute and tries to bar him from entering when traveling... That was an awkward trip)
  12. Could be either situation. If someone has x days from z to do y, even after you've done z you don't have any right to y before x days have passed. So if you file your claim before x days, it's premature.
  13. Could also be a timing issue: If delivery of an address in writing triggers certain rights but the application was filled prior to those rights crystalizing then that may have resulted in the insufficiency.
  14. Some admin tribunals are staffed with decision makers without any legal training. Procedural fairness and natural justice get bandied about for two hours in the course of training and... Zoom... You're on your way to making final and binding orders affecting people's lives. In BC the RTB, first level of Employment Standards and the decision makers that do the admin roadside suspension hearings won't necessarily have legal training.
  15. I think it was UBC in the early 90s and somewhere in Ontario in the 2000s. I'd doubt you'll find much online about it. It's not hard hitting news. And like the 90s were before the internet.
