  • …according to a lawyer. Before I went to law school, I thought I had a pretty good handle on what it took to create a person – the birds and the bees and all that. Boy, was I mistaken! One of our very first study assignments upon entering the hallowed precincts of Osgoode Hall was […] The post The meaning of life appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • There is a long corridor on the busy, third floor of the Vancouver court house where the busiest courtrooms in the province crank out justice on an industrial scale. It features a remarkable photo gallery – portraits of every Supreme Court judge who has ever dispensed justice in the Province. Display of political correctness I […] The post Politically incorrect justice appeared first on GreenWay L...

  • Ah, the ancient tradition of the opening of the assize; the stentorian voice of the sheriff of the county, dressed in a frock coat, and ringing a bell, flanked by scarlet coated Mounties, summoning us, a gaggle of black-robed barristers, chafing under ill-fitting, starched tab collars, to attend before the bar and draw lots to […] The post Oyez, the assize is back in town! appeared first on GreenW...

  • The silver lining in the dark grey storm clouds marking our lousy spring has been the enforced opportunity to tackle long-overdue indoor chores, like sorting one’s sock drawer and organizing one’s music library. It was while embarked upon the later task that I was suddenly struck by a nagging question: Why are there no lawyer […] The post Sing me a song appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • One of the most terrifying experiences of my life occurred at Vimy Ridge, about 50 years after the famous First World War battle was over. After fudging my application to say I could actually speak French, I had the profound privilege of scoring a summer job as a tour guide with the Commonwealth War Graves […] The post Vimy Ridge 100 appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • As the silliness of election season in British Columbia ramps up, I find myself with a familiar sense of ennui. I think of it as “two-party-itis”. Who the hell am I going to vote for? Governments long in power tend to develop a fetid stench, and I find my blood pressure rising whenever Premier Christy’s […] The post High sea politics appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • I blogged recently about the emerging ‘gig economy’ and the challenge it presents to employment law to adapt to meet the needs of both workers and those who hire them in the new economy. The topic had originally come to mind because of our ongoing efforts at GreenWay to attract and retain legal talent (we […] The post The Gig Economy, Part II appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • Just as an iceberg reveals only its tip to the world, GreenWay Legal Centre’s tiny retail footprint in Willowbrook Shopping Centre is but the tip of a massive, well-oiled legal machine that quietly purrs away 24/7 out of sight, and out of mind. We are indeed the law firm that never sleeps, with research tentacles […] The post We stand corrected! appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • For those who care to look, the evidence is there. Tiny footprints in the snow south of Emerson Manitoba, miniature life jackets floating in the tide line in a Newfoundland cove and grim-faced border guards beating the bushes along Zero Avenue. Yes, undocumented Leprechauns are slipping across the border into Canada in ever increasing numbers. […] The post Sanctuary for the wee folk appeared first...

  • The new bounty hunters

    Mention “Bounty Hunters” and the image that immediately flashes to mind is one of a steely-eyed Lee Van Cleef, trying to stare down an equally steely-eyed Clint Eastwood in a spaghetti western. One thinks of hard men living hard lives, sleeping rough under the endless western sky while stalking desperados across a trackless prairie. One […] The post The new bounty hunters appeared first on GreenWa...

  • Where there’s a will

    The making of a will can be an emotional roller coaster, both for the testator making the will, and the solicitor drafting it. While many sensible folk give traditional instructions along the lines of “Give everything to my spouse, and then to the kids equally,” for some, the task becomes a journey through the sort […] The post Where there’s a will appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • John Naisbitt, in his best-selling books Megatrends and Megatrends 2000, brought the scholarly doctrine of content analysis to pop culture, by using an analysis of how frequently certain words, phrases or concepts were mentioned in daily newspapers to predict emerging global trends. At its simplest, Naisbitt’s theory was that by measuring the rate of increase […] The post ICBC trending signals cha...

  • The Gig Economy

    We have just added a page to our modest website to herald the fact that we do, in fact, deal with employment law. It’s something we have always done, but with the recent arrival of Cody Reedman, who is keen as mustard to start developing an employment law practice, we thought we should spill some […] The post The Gig Economy appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • The perils of joint tenancy

    Very occasionally a reader will shyly comment upon the dearth of any actual law-related content on our law firm blog. My standard response to those impertinent interlocutors is to patiently explain that your correspondent blogs solely for his own amusement, and since most legal topics are decidedly not amusing, and for the most part downright […] The post The perils of joint tenancy appeared first...

  • Adopt a stray for Christmas

    As an early Christmas present to myself I settled a long, long outstanding lawsuit that had been threatening to bifurcate my holiday season with a nasty Supreme Court trial. The case was a property dispute involving an eccentric old woman who, she said, had inadvertently signed over an interest in her property to a person […] The post Adopt a stray for Christmas appeared first on GreenWay Legal Ce...

  • Through a different traffic lens

    One of the things I enjoy most about travel is the journey’s end, when for a brief interlude, one has the opportunity to view one’s own country through the eyes of a stranger. I spent most of October travelling in Ecuador, and revelled in the transitory culture shock that attended my return. I walked in […] The post Through a different traffic lens appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • Rule Britannia

    I have confessed before in the pages of this blog that I am a closet monarchist, still pining away for the good old days when the sun never set on the glorious British Empire, and the map on the schoolroom wall still revealed the Empire’s vast extent by showing all the component bits in pink, […] The post Rule Britannia appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • It’s a dog discrimination life

    Lately, it seems every second newscast carries an item about a dog attack, accompanied by someone’s hysterical cry to ban all pit bulls, and frankly, it makes my hackles rise. As a former dog owner I’ve always prided myself on the fact that they never bit anyone who didn’t roundly deserve it, and even then, […] The post It’s a dog discrimination life appeared first on GreenWay Legal Centre.

  • Making the certified grade

    I have been watching with interest the fire-storm surrounding Earls restaurants recent flip-flop decision to use only ‘certified’ hormone-free and humanely raised beef, since in our household in recent years, we have become increasingly interested in the source of all our food products, to the point where I swear that our hideously expensive eggs must […] The post Making the certified grade appear...

  • Vendor selectivity goes mainstream

    Shopping used to be a whole lot easier. Money talked and the customer was always right. A brave new world for consumers: vendors get to choose Ford has recently announced that just having $400,000 USD in your jeans isn’t going to be a sufficient qualification to purchase their soon-to-be-released Ford GT twin turbo super car.

  • Big bucks cases – rioting and the value for money

    I think I have finally found the elusive silver lining in the dark cloud that constitutes the Canucks horrible season this year. Failing to make the play-offs pretty much guarantees that there will be no repeat this year of the famous Stanley Cup riot of 2011, and we overburdened taxpayers could accordingly save up to […] The post Big bucks cases – rioting and the value for money appeared first on...

  • Crowdfunding schemes and the law

    Years ago, I had a charming rogue for a client who devoted most of his waking hours to devising get-rich-quick schemes. While totally allergic to the concept of honest toil for an honest wage, he nonetheless invested huge amounts of time and energy in chasing his dream. Buddy, can you spare me a dime? “Christopher,” […] The post Crowdfunding schemes and the law appeared first on GreenWay Legal Cen...
