Kirkpatrick Creative, an advertising agency representing law firms, says probably not. Not surprisingly, it seems that print yellow page phone books still work.

Mathematician Error Sees Lawsuit Subtracted From Docket

Written by Daniel Standing LL.B., Editor, First Reference Inc.

When major workplace disputes arise, sometimes litigation is the only avenue to a resolution. It is easy to think of the courts as the place where these disputes are settled, but for a unionized employee, opting to sue the employer instead of going through the grievance process could be the wrong move. Whether the court will look at the case will depend on what the claim is about, and how broadly the collective agreement language addresses the underlying nature of the complaint. The Court of Appeal for British Columbia applied the . . . [more]

Community-Based Justice

Does finding help in your community when you are experiencing troubles produce a sense of wellbeing and security? Do feelings of well-being and security matter as outcomes?

The criminal law perspective has dominated the public and professional discourse about community security and wellbeing for decades. This has ranged along the political continuum from tougher crime control measures and mandatory sentences intended to remove criminals from our streets to community policing intended to make a police presence both a comfort and a protection for community residents. Letas now turn our attention to the role of access to civil justice in community . . . [more]

Personal Conflicts of Interest and the Junior Lawyer

In April, former Alberta Justice Minister Jonathan Denis was found in contempt of court because a letter sent on his behalf threatened to bring an action for defamation against a plaintiff who was in the middle of giving testimony in a civil trial.

The plaintiff, Dr. Sauvageau, was Albertaas top forensic pathologist from 2011-2014, and was suing the province alleging that she had been forced out of the job because she raised concerns relating to political interference. Mr. Denis was not a defendant in the action, but was the justice minister at the time the allegations pertain to.

Misgendering Students Can Be Professional Misconduct

In the so-called culture wars these days, there can be highly politicized debates around transgender rights and the proper use of pronouns. In Ontario, these debates are without legal basis, as gender identity and gender expression are protected grounds under the Human Rights Code.

Under some misguided notion of challenging students to think critically, there are teachers who reiterate the talking points of both sides of such culture wars, but do so at their own peril.

A recent decision by the Discipline Committee in Ontario College of Teachers v Teal illustrates the regulatory context in the educational setting.

Unfair Treatment Not Always Violation of Human Rights

Written by Lewis Waring, Paralegal, Student-at-Law, Editor at First Reference

In Nguyen v Central Stampings Limited (aNguyena), an employee’s feeling that an employer’s conduct derived from discriminatory intent due to his sex was not sufficient to obtain compensation for violation of the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Background

The employer was a manufacturer of metal stamping products. The employee had been suspended following an incident in September 2017 in which he used the workplace radio to broadcast his issues with his supervisor. These issues included the employee’s perception that the supervisor had discriminated against him by making an obscene gesture . . . [more]

The UNas Achilles Heel Mires International Action to Halt Aggression and Atrocities in Ukraine

Russiaas unlawful invasion of Ukraine has led the international community to respond with unprecedented speed and intensity. Reactions to this European conflict are in stark contrast with the lack of effective international action to halt ongoing atrocities in Myanmar, Afghanistan, China, and other places. The crisis in Ukraine has also brought to the foreground the limitations of international law and mechanisms to halt aggression and atrocity crimes.

This article summarizes recent attempts within United Nations (UN) bodies to halt the war and atrocities in Ukraine. Also considered are actions in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and . . . [more]

Challenging the Status Quo With Style Guides

There is more than one way to approach setting standards for the writing and formatting of documents. An important thing to keep in mind is having a continuous awareness of, and sensitivity to, the use of text within our changing world, and to build style guides as tools that can help reflect our values, rather than a set of rules that never advance.

In my work at CanLII, Iave had the opportunity to develop a style guide to help meet the needs of our collaborative writing projects. I also think about writing standards in my volunteer work as the associate . . . [more]
