Is the Law Green?

THE FERNIE FIX'S GREEN EDITION is great to get us all thinking about how we can reduce our impact on the environment. However, this legal article is difficult to make “green,” particularly since environmental lawyers are usually only in bigger cities, and I am a small-town lawyer and can’t be so specific in my practice. Don’t get me wrong, I care about the environment, but I wasn’t quite sure where to start to write my “green” legal article. Thus, a little research was in order and as a result, this article is comprised of ideas and information from on-line sources.

For the Kids

I wrote about the new Family Law Act in my June 2012 Fernie Fix article; see http://www.ferniefix.com/article/change-coming if you are interested in what I had to say then. However, at the time that I wrote that article, the proposed legislation was relatively new and it was unknown when it would come into force. We now have a date that it will be enacted – March 18, 2013.

Shovels at the Ready

It is winter. In Fernie. It hardly needs to be said, but, winter conditions are going to be everywhere in town – and for quite a while longer. Of course, this snow and ice can create slippery conditions for pedestrians visiting or passing over the property that you own or are renting. If you are wondering what your responsibilities are for clearing away this snow and ice, look no further.

Dogs Deserve Leashes

Your dog is friendly, right? Your dog wouldn’t hurt a fly. Your dog has never hurt any person or animal. Your dog barks or growls, but it’s just its way of playing. If these are some of the justifications you use to let your dog out without a leash, this article is for you.

In Fernie, there seems to be an epidemic of dogs off leash, but if this is commonly how you deal with your dog, you aren’t doing your dog, yourself or your neighbours any favours.

In the Community Charter (S.C.B. 2003 c.26), a “dangerous dog” is a dog that:
(a) has killed or seriously injured a person,

The Law Doesn't Take a Break for the Holidays

With the holiday season approaching, you should be aware of possible liability as a result of the various festivities you might be hosting. Host liability can be divided into two categories: the “social host” and the “commercial host.” A social host is simply someone that has a party where alcohol is consumed and a commercial host is an establishment that serves alcohol for profit.
