Just In Case You Missed It...The Superstitionists Don't Always Win.


From the MoCo:

The Law Society of Upper Canada has voted 28 to 21 against the accreditation of Trinity Western University's proposed new law school in B.C.

The vote means graduates from the B.C. university would not be able to practise in Ontario.

“Benchers took this issue very seriously, and did not find it easy to reach a decision,” said the Law Society of Upper Canada's treasurer, in a written statement.

“As members of the legal profession, we recognize the entrenched values of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and Ontario’s Human Rights Code, including the right of equality and the right to freedom of religion, and the foundational nature of those rights to our democracy.”

Trinity Western University students must sign a strict Christian covenant governing behaviour, including abstaining from sexual intimacy "that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman."...

Too bad it didn't work out that way here in British Columbia.

Where have the superstitionists won lately?....Well, there is....This.

In the recent past however, the Law Society of Upper Canada did see fit to admit an admitted briber of public officials in British Columbia to its august ranks.

Utahish Columbia has a nice ring to it.

Ah yes...




Sadly, probably, yes...

But, what if it were, instead, Utah Phillips Columbia?
