New cross-country system to take heavily worn winter storm path

Meteorologists are closely monitoring yet another cross-country snowstorm on the way. Even though it will take a jog southward over the Rockies, the storm will then trek northward and aim at the Upper Midwest, just as many storms have done so far this winter.The weather pattern feels like the movie "Groundhog Day" as Mother Nature seems to be exercising from muscle memory, according to forecasters, and that will start, in this case, with the storm rolling into the Pacific Northwest coastline."Th...

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion – What Can We Agree on and What Can’t We?

I recently attended part of RODA’s 5th Annual Diversity Conference which was entitled Resilience in Challenging Times. I was particularly interested in hearing the panel Building Consensus: The Future of EDI at the LSO. There were four panelists; two from the Stop the SOP slate and two who had been members of the Law Society Challenges Task Force. The context for the panel appeared to me to be intentionally post-Statement of Principles, to address questions beyond the debate about compelled spee...

Serenity Now: A Minimalist Family Compound in the Quebec Countryside

Lucy Riddle and Katherine Nikidis weren’t in the market for land. But on a visit to see Lucy’s mother in the Quebec countryside, the two went on a just-for-fun look-see—and not only succumbed to a secluded property but almost instantly had a vision for it.  Now that their two kids were in their twenties, they wanted to create a modernist family gathering place composed of mine, yours, and ours structures, a space for mediation included. “Both of us have strong ideas about design,” says Lucy, who...

(Photo: NordicFocus) Not the backdrop one might expect from Scandiavia in mid-winter, rather, green grass, bare ski jumps, and a ribbon of snow were found in Falun, Sweden. However, what was lacking in snow was made up for by a densely packed crowd of cheering fans, erupting as athletes flew by in the women’s classic sprint. An occurrence that might meet our expectati...

The most detailed photos and videos of the sun's surface ever captured reveal Texas-sized cells of boiling plasma

The highest-resolution photos and video ever taken of the sun's surface show it covered in Texas-sized blobs of boiling plasma. The images come from the new Inouye Solar Telescope in Hawai'i.

Judges Need Ethics Rules, Not Just Ethical Guidance

Canada is extremely fortunate to be served by a highly competent and responsible judiciary. But judges, like all of us, experience ethical challenges as they fulfill their vitally important social functions. However, many Canadian judges are not subject to a binding code of conduct that can shepherd their behaviour. Instead, they are only offered advice to assist them in navigating ethical issues. We suggest that this should change. There are currently over 1000 federally appointed judges in Can...

The Decade in Legal Education (2010-2019)

The end of a year is a time to reflect upon the previous 12 months. The end of 2019 also provides the opportunity to reflect on the past decade. Is it an exaggeration to say that the past decade has seen more changes in legal education in Canada than at any point in the past half-century? Since the opening of Queen’s, Western, and Ottawa in the 1950s? Or perhaps since the transfer of Osgoode Hall to York University by the Law Society of Upper Canada in 1965? The decade that ended saw the opening...

The Wondrous World of Creating Constitutional Law

Senator Mike Duffy is suing the Senate for the pay he lost when he was suspended from the Senate. His lawsuit raises the constitutional issue of parliamentary immunity, on the basis of which Justice Sally Gomery of the Ontario Superior Court dismissed his claim. Duffy’s appeal is based on the loss of Senate immunity if it has engaged in wrongdoing, as the Senate did, he says, in taking its direction from the executive (Prime Minister Stephen Harper).
