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.

Licensing blues

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_Lisa-Lifshitz.jpgPity the poor licence agreement. Sometimes it doesn’t get much respect from clients.
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_Stephen-Mabey-2013.jpgAt last count there were over 25 issues/reasons identified by the legal press (blogs, newspapers, magazines, etc.) that led to the unfortunate demise of Heenan Blaikie. 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.
