  1. @sunnyskies1992 reminder there's only an hour to edit posts and there is no delete button
  2. This is going to be meta: no one here can provide you with legal advice.
  3. Keep in mind you only have one hour to edit posts and we do not delete posts even if they contain identifying information.
  4. I walk 30 min to work. I bought myself some good rain gear for the eight months of Vancouver rain. I keep dress shoes at work and a couple of back up outfits in case something goes wrong.
  5. And the standard of review analysis can’t make it past the age of 10!
  6. A podcast on the design history of the suit (Articles of Interest via 99% Invisible): https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/99-invisible/id394775318?i=1000475871082

  8. Federal gov MAiD consultation: https://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/cons/ad-am/index.html Turn your online kvetching into submissions by Jan 27th
  9. Well that decisions just changed a lot in my world. Merry Christmas. I found the minority reasons (from the headnote only!) in Vavilov much more compelling. The rebuttable presumption of reasonableness where a statutory appeal exists completely fails to recognize tribunal expertise.
  10. As others mentioned, LAP and the whichever EAP is associated with your law society might be a place to start. If you are not safe right now, I would suggest that these two resources may not be enough assistance for you and that your instincts about a hospital are right. If you are working with a psychiatrist right now, you should report your suicidal ideation to him/her/them and come up with a safety plan. Your GP may also be a good starting point but, generally, GPs lack the necessary training to deal with severe mental health issues. Law fosters black and white thinking, perfectionism and hypervigilance towards negative outcomes. These are extra toxic lenses through which to view your life. Take care of yourself with the compassion you deserve.
  11. Back when I applied (many moons ago) I submitted my application in November for admission in September of the following year and didn’t get a response until April. A friend was applying for reinstatement (nothing weird—just a return to BC practice) and it required multiple follow up emails. Im guessing they’re swamped. if you’re not looking to start articles soon, I’d wait to follow up if you can.
  12. Chair for BCRB is posted and looks like the PAABBC Vice Chair posting is up still.
  13. I continued to have those feelings eight years after graduating and signed up to take an online business course through a local college. The itch was scratched and I no longer romanticize school (for now....)
