About this Site
The original goal of this site was to provide low-income and otherwise under-serviced Ontario citizens with thorough, accessible legal information that they could use to manage their own legal situations. Over time a second purpose evolved as high internet traffic offered a chance to shift my law practice entirely on-line, thus facilitating world travel.
It's been over two years now since I sold off all my stuff, boarded out my beloved cats, gave up the old Toronto apartment and took Isthatlegal.ca wholly on the road. Life on the road isn't all it's cracked up to be, but luckily it is most of what it is cracked up to be.
Travels so far have taken me to Rarotonga, New Zealand and Tasmania for about three months each. A long layover in Malaysia was just recently broken by a shift to Greece in early September 2011. At present I'm targeting a long stay in Preveza, a lovely little mid-size town on the Ioanian coast. I expect my non-casework time to be spent improving (esp. adding case law) and updating my core Legal Guides (Small Claims and Residential Tenancies are done so far), and adding some more sector-specific Consumer Law guides (just completed one on Collection Agencies).
On the non-law front I've hooked up with a local animal support group and we are doing 'trap-neuter-return' (TNR) work with the local feral cats, with nine (seven breeding) females done to date. Meeeow!
So lots of work to do and nice surroundings to do it in - plus truly fabulous greek cheese, wine, bread, vegetables, fruit and fish to sustain me.
