so, one year later...

Trudeau is firmly in control, Philpott is gone from politics, JWR is an independent footnote and Meng just had a very contentious court decision againt her: the BC judge ruling contentiously that fraud against the U.S. is fraud in Canada.

Nice to live in a country where our courts are independent and apolitical. As always, I encourage people to read the actual decision (not just news accounts): https://www.bccourts.ca/jdb-txt/sc/2...20BCSC0785.htm

This "broader scope" is the worst kind of legal pettifoggery - so much so that I must ascribe political motives to the judge,

Remember the argument in front of her was "dual criminality", nothing else. I can't fault her conclusion that the underlying crime is fraud and is a criminal offense in Canada.

As for your use of "pettifoggery", that's a pretty baseless thing to be saying about this particular judge. Incredibly well respected jurist.
