Buckle up for a wild ride as we navigate the intricacies of some fascinating legal cases on Legally Speaking with Michael Mulligan. He’s a barrister and solicitor at Mulligan Defence Lawyers.
First up, a woman, her guinea fowl, and a bylaw that isn’t as black and white as it seems. Discover how this fascinating case hinged on the interpretation of the bylaw and whether guinea fowls are considered poultry, fowl, or exotic birds. Spoiler alert: they’re not what you think!
With no time to waste, we discuss two cases involving cannabis retailers on First Nations Reserves. Listen as Michael breaks down the lawsuit where retailers accuse the province of negligence and misrepresentation. Can the province be held responsible for the retailers’ losses, or is the relationship too tenuous for a negligence claim to stick? Finally, we discuss an indigenous man who was evicted from his home on the Squamish Nation Reserve without compensation for establishing a marijuana dispensary and other violations of housing policy.
