  1. https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/bnc/clo/6100319540.html from my late night Craigslist prowls.
  2. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. The robots cometh: http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-39205935
  6. Article and then become an administrative decision maker. All you do is write. No forms. No drafting contacts. Just lovely prose all day.
  7. 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
  8. 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)
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. It happened to a bunch of students one year. They accidentally let in people they shouldn't have. Happened years ago.
  14. Some people are religious. Some people are 'mos. We protect both. It's sometimes hard to protect both at the same time. SCC will tell us how to do this.
  15. Leave decision(s) on Thursday!
