Labour Dispute

Hopefully by the time this edition of the Fernie Fix hits the stands, this article will be less timely than it is at writing; namely, the kids will be back at school.

Motor Vehicle Stops and Your Rights

I have recently been asked the question of how the police are permitted to stop us randomly in our motor vehicles, particularly in the case of roadside blocks. The police can, and should, be permitted to stop us for random motor vehicle checks and this article will explain why.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees all citizens the right not to be arbitrarily detained and to be free from unreasonable searches and seizure. Random stops and roadside blocks are by definition arbitrary, so a logical question is why don’t they violate our rights?

Why You Need A Will… Again

I first wrote about this subject in September 2012. While the message is still the same (you should have a will), there have been some changes in this area of the law.

If you die without a will (intestate), your property and assets will now be distributed according the Wills Estates and Succession Act (“WESA”), which is new legislation that came into effect on March 31, 2014.

Catch Me If You Can: Kids Running Camp
This August, Georgia Fear is hosting a running camp in Fernie with all proceeds benefiting the Emily Brydon Youth Foundation. A 16-year-old girl who resides in London, England and spends every summer and Christmas in Fernie with her family (the Majic’s), Georgia recognized that there is currently no camp on offer for kids in the Elk Valley and wanted to instil her own love of running into young children, teaching proper technique, training habits, recovery options, nutrition and above all else how to have fun.
