Not Everyone’s Lawyer?

Should law societies impose gender or age-based restrictions on a lawyer’s practice? Stated otherwise, is it appropriate to permit a lawyer to continue to practice on conditions that restrict their interaction with women (or men) or minors? For the reasons that follow, I believe that the answer to both of these questions is “no”. The issue of practice restrictions of this sort first caught my attention several years ago when a Connecticut lawyer received a lifetime ban on representing women. Thi...

The Time TPM Went To Toronto In Search Of Rob Ford, And Other Golden Duke Stories

In the Trump era, political scandals of yesteryear are routinely written off as quaint — events from a time when the bar for decency was higher and our collective threshold for tolerating scandal hadn’t yet been dismantled by the brazen, unethical behavior that the Trump administration ushered in. That’s not quite the case with Rob Ford. The crack-smoking late mayor of Toronto, upon receiving the much-coveted TPM Golden Duke award in January of 2014, was seared in TPM’s history as one of the ...

Make The Canadian Division Permanent?

from Cathal Kelly of the Globe and Mail, The Canadian division is a solution to a problem no one wanted to talk about until COVID-19 forced them to. It makes societal concerns the central organizing point of the league, rather than geography. It creates the most interest where the biggest audience exists. That isn’t stacking the deck. That’s just good planning. A permanent all-Canadian division means that, for a quarter of the league at least, the regular season starts to matter again...

Four Players On The Toronto Maple Leafs Account For Half Of The Salary Cap

from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star, ...given that Tavares and hard-negotiating colleagues Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and William Nylander will combine to earn about 50 per cent of the $81.5-million salary cap next season, the top-heavy roster has created a problematic imbalance in Leafland. The imbalance, for now, is financial. Time will tell if it gets personal. While the Leafs have spent the off-season attempting to address various weaknesses — adding to their depth on defence...

OLIVIER DOULIERY/AFP via Getty Images Much of the world woke up Wednesday to startling headlines about the first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

When Will The 2020-21 Season Start?

from Damien Cox at the Toronto Star, The projected Dec. 1 startup date for next season now seems like a pipe dream. Pro leagues unable to fill the stands with paying customers are taking punishing losses, and probably not enough is being said or written about this. That’s not even taking into account the seven clubs that weren’t invited to the expanded playoffs and could end up going eight months or more without playing a single game. It seems likely NHL owners will want to have a...

Former bodyguard of Kim Jong-il claims he is 'a dead man' if deported to South Korea

A man who claims to be the former bodyguard of Kim Jong-il, the late North Korean leader, has said he fears for his life if he is deported by to South Korea after Canada denied his asylum application. “The situation is bleak,” Lee Young-guk, 57, told the Toronto Star. “(The North Korean regime) tried to kidnap me when I was in South Korea. If Canada returns me there, I’m a dead man.” Mr Lee, who published a book “I was Kim Jong-il’s bodyguard” claims he began a ten-year stint in the security tea...

Online Juries: Is It Possible?

It has recently been reported that jury trials may resume soon. The Toronto Star reported the following: “Canada’s justice system has no intention of holding Zoom jury trials — or cancelling them. That means … thousands of others may soon find themselves called into an Ontario courthouse, reporting for jury duty amid the ongoing pandemic — a prospect that’s left the legal community wondering how it’s all going to work.” Perhaps blockchain technology could be used for jury trials? I previously di...

Hockey In August?

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, The NHL seems particularly hell-bent on discarding any sense that a hockey season should be contained to a particular time of year. Accordingly, it appears there’s a plan being advanced by the return-to-play committee to stretch the 2019-20 season into August, maybe even September, and start the next one in December. Suddenly, anything’s possible for Gary (Mr. Flexible) Bettman. Funny, but that didn’t seem to be the way things operated back on Feb....

Hockey & Rock Music Are a Perfect Mix

Music plays an important part in our lives, there during the best times and worst times. When music works its way into sports, then the connection becomes that much stronger. We’ve already read stories of musicians who’ve made an impact on the hockey community. THW’s Jon Zella wrote an amazing article on how the metal band Every Time I Die represents the city of Buffalo as well as the Sabres, keeping them close to their hearts.  When you think of Canadian rock, you think of The Tragically...

The Relationship Between Law, Private Enforcement, Social Pressure and “Snitching”

As it has with so many of our regular practices, the coronavirus crisis has highlighted or brought to the fore the advantages and disadvantages of the relationship between the law, private enforcement, social pressure and “snitching” in enforcing desirable social practices. Law requires legislation, regulation or by-laws, whether in public or private contexts. Private enforcement means a private actor downloads requirements to those using its services. Social pressure may work through personal ...

“Trial by Zoom”: What Virtual Hearings Might Mean for Open Courts, Participant Privacy and the Integrity of Court Proceedings

It’s not business as usual in Canadian courts. The COVID-19 pandemic has upended court operations, just as it has upended every other aspect of daily life. One response to the need to ensure physical distancing has been to move in-person court hearings to virtual formats. Beyond the utility of virtual hearings as short term emergency measures, there is reason to believe that this moment may well mark the start of a shift toward increased use of virtual hearings in the longer term. In discussing ...
