Law Times reports a judge has issued a strong rebuke of the processes lawyers have to follow to retrieve unpaid fees from clients, and backlogs at the provincial assessment office. Do you feel an overhaul of the process is long-overdue?

A Law Times columnist says criminal law is out of step and argues there should be an immediate moratorium on HIV non-disclosure prosecutions, unless there is alleged intentional transmission. Do you agree?
Yes, the unjust criminalization of people living with HIV needs to change. The law has become more draconian even as HIV has become more manageable and as transmission risks decrease.
No, the law should remain as it is, and the Ministry of the Attorney General should not change its approach.
