    Farce upon farce. Only contempt of court is taken up seriously. All other cases against high and mighty put off for months.

    When filing they leave some issue for the accused to argue and escape. Good BC lawyers . All the high profile cases will end this way. It is I scratch your back you scratch my back policy

    Although they cannot do a proper case, yesterday had a grand ceremony about a 5 year action plan. All rogues were invited for that
