Drunk Canoeing and other Stupid laws, Who is the best judge ever, and R. v Suter: with "friend" of the podcast Peter Sankoff

So episode 64 - a new record.  But you know that right? Because you subscribe to the show on iTunes and have already rated and reviewed the podcast - right? You should.

Good friend of the podcast Peter Sankoff makes a triumphant return to the podcast studio.

Peter was in town making arguments at the Supreme Court of Canada in the very interesting case of R. v. Suter. You will want to follow this case - vigilant kidnapping, revenge thumb amputation, and some very poor advice from a lawyer.

We also talk about the most Canadian crime ever - Drunk Canoeing. Yes it is a crime. It should not be but it is. 

Speaking of pointless Criminal Code amendments, a Conservative wants to amend the Criminal Code to make theft of firefighting equipment illegal - the problem is that it is already a crime.

Then we debate who is the best judge ever.

We also have some new art - it is still new because it is way easier to just copy and past this section each week - from an awesome young designer Parker Mazerolle - serious he is crazy good - go check out his work.
