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.

Saving your files: cloud or network?

The cloud allows the latest version of my legal work to be synced, saved, and secured but not every cloud provider can be trusted with confidential information.

To be clear, the misfortune I speak of is not the disappearance of the law firm itself, but of those who were affected as a result through no fault of their own but rather because of the seeming ineptness of others.

Nevin devoted her Tech Support column to a discussion of Sedona Canada, entitled “Filling a gap: What is the Sedona Conference Working Group 7, and why does it matter?” Ms. Nevin, who is a member of the Sedona Conference Working Group Series, describes the mission of Working Group 7 (known as Sedona Canada) and its open membership policy. She also identifies Sedona Canada’s landmark achievements in the area of electronic discovery and disclosure in civil litigation, including the publication of The Sedona Canada Principles in 2008 and their subsequent adoption by reference into the Ontario Rules of Civil Procedure, as well as the publication for public comment of several commentaries on related topics.
