A quid pro quo I can get behind

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_LIndsay-Scott14.jpgMy firm Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP and the commercial litigation practice group of The Advocates’ Society recently hosted a fantastic women’s networking event featuring a presentation by Ritu Bhasin. I had heard about Bhasin (@Ritu_Bhasin) and her terrific seminars several times before. I’ll pass on the same advice given to me: if you ever get a chance to see her, go! She’s a wonderful speaker, full of wisdom to pass on to lawyers, particularly women.

The news isn’t quite what it used to be

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_tonywilson.jpgGrowing up in the ’60s and ’70s, I watched more far more news than sports and I can recall, in varying degrees, the Cuban missile crisis, the Kennedy assassination(s), the Mercury and Gemini space missions, the U.S. civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the moon landings, Watergate, and the Cold War; all through the lens of Walter Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley, Harry Reasoner, and others on U.S. networks. I can’t recall anything newsworthy in Canada until the flag debate of 1965, the election of Pierre Trudeau in 1968, and the FLQ crisis in 1970; all of it broadcast on CTV and CBC.
