More Ottawa Insanity

We've seen the lawyers bill for the Gomery inquiry, 80 million so far. Ever wonder why it's so high? Well, in Ottawa, everyone has legal representation...

Remember this story about the pitbulls who were allowed to maul children on two separate occasions? Well, they have their own legal council now. They are even fighting for a publication ban. (Wonder if all mad dogs use this strategy...)

Don't take my word for it, check it out:

Dog Owner's Lawyers Want Publication Ban

A legal fight involving three pit bull-like dogs has taken a bit of a turn.
Lawyers for the dog's owner say a rescue has found a new home for the animals but want their names and location under a publication ban.
City lawyers are fighting to have the dogs destroyed after they were involved in two separate attacks earlier this year.
The legal hearing continues August 2nd.

Why the publication ban? Should we not have the right to know if these dogs are moving in next door to us? Or maybe next door to your kids school? Or daycare?

Remember - kids are friends, not food...

How stupid. I'd always thought the best "we're not Americans" example was that Canadians, as a rule of thumb, weren't nearly as litigious as our friends to the south.

We can't even get THAT right anymore. Sheesh.

I believe that our high level of taxation directly influences peoples will to sue the neighbor, we work to survive and sue to get rich.

Another reason is our new found ability to blame anyone but ourselves for our actions and the resulting consequences.

The population is coming to mirror the government.
