Spirits Of The Law

To the Bitters End: MMIWG/JWR/ICBC/SNC (File No. 007)



Ian Bushfield of Politicoast joins Matthew and Sarah to talk about the Report on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, give Jody Wilson-Raybould a report card on her time as Attorney General, talk about the changes to the ICBC insurance scheme, and check in with the embattled SNC Lavalin. The report on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls was recently released, and includes amongst its recommendations Calls to Action for Individuals, for Lawyers and Law Societies. Read the report here. Jody Wilson-Raybould was the Attorney General for much of the Trudeau government's tenure. How did her performance stack up against her mandate letter? Not great. ICBC is bringing the hammer down on distracted and impaired drivers, seatbelt scofflaws, and people who have gotten all of two tickets. How will their changes impact insurance? See the changes here. Finally, SNC Lavalin has dropped over 60% in share value, and has a brand-new CEO to show for it. Who is Ian Edwards? Will he turn the company around
