An excellent truth by Toronto lawyer Omar Ha-Redeye

“Lawyers are important beyond just practicing law. And although our contributions to society are not always fully cherished or appreciated, these gains cannot be simplified to analyses of too many or too few.”

Lawyer Omar Ha-Redeye comments about whether Canadian law schools are turning out too many lawyers. (See SLAW – Canada’s online legal magazine.)

Documenting the outrageous abuse heaped upon Canadians who are forced to represent themselves in court tends to focus people on the negative – because that is the truth of the situation in Canada at this moment.

That necessary focus, however, does not fairly indicate my appreciation of our legal system and my deep respect for those good people who do the best they can to deliver justice to Canadians within our flawed system.

Through my own experience of over forty years in public and private law enforcement in and around our courts, it has been my honour to meet and work with so many truly decent, dedicated lawyers and judges.

Canada has the worst legal system – except for all the others.

Although a handful of corrupt lawyers and police fabricated the false testimony that sent me to prison for 63 days in solitary confinement – and I often write about my case and post supporting evidence – I do not forget that without courageous and honest lawyers and judges, our way of life would collapse into chaos.

It would not take much effort to make Canada like so many countries where lawyers, judges and justice are bought and sold with money, violence, threats and other inducements. All it takes is a powerful and corrupt cartel – and regulators willing to look the other way “to avoid unpleasantness.”

And, individual lawyers who may have integrity but lack courage.

“Does Canada need more lawyers? Here’s what Omar Ha-Redeye says about this:

The utility of a legal education and training is not limited to the provision of legal services.

An understanding of our laws or at least how the system operates is indispensable in a countless number of jobs and industries, from business executives, private consulting, regulatory review, privacy compliance, public interest, just to name a few.

If the debate emerges out of the licensing problems that’s somewhat of a separate issue. I think legal training, i.e. work experience in some capacity, is also advantageous for the many non-professional roles which lawyers can play in our society.

Lawyers are important beyond just practicing law. And although our contributions to society are not always fully cherished or appreciated, these gains cannot be simplified to analyses of too many or too few.”

  • Thanks Allen. Great post. The boys club on Bay Street would never have been able to get away with stuff if our police forces investigated judicial misconduct properly. Thus the sad story of Mr. Best and others.

    When lawyers walk into court with fabricated evidence and an ex opp cop worked illegally as an investigator and our police forces do nothing then the police forces can hang their heads in disgrace. They cannot look their children with honesty and conviction when they do not uphold their oath and badges. Cops who cover for dirty cops are crooked and until they come forward they remain crooked and when they arrest someone they are dishonorable cops no better than the criminal they handcuffed.

    The lawyer Mr Wardell carries on the story of corruption because he knows conflict of interest is needed but it’s what will cause him problems . He represented two lawyers who blatantly fabricated evidence so Mr. Wardell has caused a huge problem in the hearing to come and the Feds better be ready to take action before the hearing begins.

    Every case judge shaughnessey presided over is under the microscope. So are the two lawyers involved and so is the former OPP officer and any affidavits he signed prior to Mr. Best case.

    Yes there is a major problem here requiring the feds to take action. Any inaction on the part of the feds proves strings being pulled illegally

    Mr Best, it is all good that is your experience but I must say in this whole scheme of things, maybe it is a good idea for you to recognize that others have different experience so here is mine measured in accordance to yours.

    Through my own experience of over twenty years in public and private law encounters in and around our courts, it has been my sorrow and disappointment to meet and work with so many truly dishonest and unworthy lawyers and judges who are nothing but an embarrassment to this blessed country.
    FURTHER, I have totally lost respect for or appreciation for our legal system. WHAT IS MORE, unlike you I have actually seen the little it took to make Canada even worse than the many countries where lawyers and judges and justice are bought and sold with money, violence, threats and other inducements and I have seen the powerful and corrupt cartel and regulators who have looked the other way . . . .

    If you challenge me on this Mr Best, please tell me how is it that my elderly mother was taken from my care by no less than cave men in this country and no less than 8 judges in Alberta know about her kidnapping and hw she has been trafficked and treated abusively no less than Michael Vicks dogs (he went to prison for dogs) but these rapists and thieves still have my mother held captive where they use medication to make her submit to all kinds of dirty men undressing her as they like. Also tell me why when I pointed out in court that a prothonotary has no authority to be making decisions on my case that men turn up at my home and physically assault me among other things. By the way the person paid with tax payers’ money from the department of justice actually filed affidavit in court saying they only sent the men to collect court cost from me. You tell me why the men tried to come into my home knowing I was there alone and on and on I could go with this story. Tell me why when I gave the statement to the RCMP they actually said they will not investigate my case of assault and fraud by these men including the prothonotary

    Does that sound like corrupt persons using inducements, violence and threats among other things while corrupt few look the other way? You would be shocked at the other corrupt many I could name who have looked the other way. I could go on and on
