Back to High School (again)

May 29, 2020

So, episode 107 – 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.

Hey look we have a sponsor! Let the podcast money start rolling in! But seriously a huge thanks to Emond Publishing!

Also a huge thanks to my firm Abergel Goldstein & Partners who have not murdered me for editing the podcast at work!

This episode we pay a virtual visit to Mrs. Darling’s grade 11 Understanding Canadian Law class at Haliburton Highlands Secondary School to answer some really great legal questions. Is mental illness a valid defence? If you help plan a murder with someone and et in trouble even if you back out? Can you refuse a breathalyzer? What happens if a minor is caught drinking underage?

All of the students’ questions were amazing. And we had a blast answering them!

But before we jump into the questions we take a quick look at the B.C Superior Court ruling on the double criminality question in the extradition case of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou. Extradition is a complicated area of law, maybe so complicated that our politicians don’t fully understand it?

Stay safe, everyone!
