Given the chance, a resident of British Columbia will be pleased to inform you on how progressive things are in the left-most province of Canada. Everyone's polite, everyone's positive, and by golly the living standards are shooting through the roof of this incredible skyscraper! It's green, it's developing rapidly, and there is naught but social progress on the horizon as far as the eye can see.
Canadians from BC also are rapid in their denunciation of their sub-border neighbors in America. Whatever bad happens in BC, it's almost always Americans to blame. A domestic BC issue that comes out on the regressive, reactionary side of the ideal social equation, that's due to American Lawyers working their evil witchery and forcing Canadian lawyers to behave like the dastardly American ones. If things are topsy-turvy in British Columbia ministrations of justice, that's because of Americans.
Naturally I am fully willing to accept blame for this recent decision of the BC Supreme Court. As an American lawyer working in the state of Neuwestia, I can assure you that I lobbied hard here on the internet (though I did not tweet about it, twitter still being well beyond my technocapacities) for a way to use judicial power to sanctify hawkish paramilitary protection of mining assests in Guatemala.
