I've recently moved back to Ontario and began working as legal counsel at the Human Rights Legal Support Centre in downtown Toronto.
You see that photo above, that's photo documentation that I'm a card-carrying lawyer in Ontario (c/o the Law Society of Upper Canada). Yeah, I got it last year when I was called to the bar, and sure I may have taken that photo of me and my card when I was in Saskatoon but nonetheless, it's the image I chose... On second thought, maybe I should have added a photo of me sitting at my desk, as that would evidence of me practicing law at the Centre.
Either way, I'm super excited to start working at the Centre and with clients on their Human Rights Code-related matters. This job entails representing clients at various stages in their human rights legal matters from mediation to hearings.
While this position is based in Toronto, the Centre assists people from across Ontario. That being said, part of the position will include me having to travel to different parts of Ontario like Timmins, Peterborough, or North Bay, among other far reaching places in this great big province.
What with all this travel around Ontario, I'll be compiling a song list about these places I'm going to be traveling to and my list is sadly small, so please let me know if you have any cool songs to add to my list. So far, my working playlist includes only men and somewhat generational, like the Hip, Neil Young, and Blue Rodeo. Drake just slipped in there somehow...
Actually, I really just added Drake to the list in the hopeless attempt to win you over Toronto. I've come to realize that this city loves Drake probably more if not almost as much as Torontonians love to tell me that the Jays won the World Series in '93 and that the Leafs are the most money making hockey franchise in the NHL. These are all very important details that one should become acquainted with when moving or visiting the city! Please also note, I love watching local sports!
