    Standard of Proof: The degree to which something must be proven

    Standard of Proof: The degree to which something must be proven

    In Canada, not all legal matters have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and it’s not just inside criminal courts where you have to apply a standard of proof test. Tribunals, civil proceedings and even governmental bodies like the Insurance Corporation of BC have to abide by standard of proof requirements. Lawyer Paul Doroshenko looks at how far these different matters must be proven.

    The Schryvers Test is a checklist police officers in BC must ask you whenever they pull you over. But where does it come from? Paul Doroshenko explores the origins of this peculiar legal requirement which dates back to a single speeding ticket issued in 1960. Paul also explains what information you are obliged to tell an officer at the roadside and which questions you are entitled not to answer.

    Liberals taking aim at Canada's gun store owners in Bill C-71

    The federal Liberals are at it again. Bill C-71 is proposing changes to Canada's gun laws. While they claim this will not bring back the long gun registry, the proposed system is very similar and puts the burden on gun store owners.

    Acumen lawyers Paul Doroshenko and Kyla Lee break down what the new laws mean for Canadian gun owners and sellers, as well as what to do if you are taking care of a family member who might be keeping guns in their home.
