Lawdiva was selected by Postmedia Network (the largest Canadian publisher of English language newspapers) to contribute to their election coverage in their goal to discover what issues are important to Canadians. My first story covered three new criminal laws brought in by the Conservative government prior to the election announcement. See my April 4 post “Fighting Crime in Canada”.
What do other Canadians think about tougher laws? A few comments from readers of canada.com “The New Agenda” on my article:
“Wow! Finally someone wearing a legal robe that thinks like I do. Where has this woman been for the past twenty years.”
“Tough on crime my be the flavour of the year. That doesn’t make it good policy. A lawyer of all people
“A breeze of fresh air. Finally someone on the ball.”
“If people are looking for tough on crime when crime is decreasing then either the public is out of touch and needs to wake up or someone is shilling the system for personal gain.”
“Methinks it’s time for Georgialee Lang to pursue a career in government. Come on Canada. Look at this women’s career! Passion, heart, experience, truth and knowledge. Haven’t seen that in government for a while.”
I am grateful to Postmedia for allowing me to reach a larger audience. Watch for my next Featured Commentary where I discuss how Canada’s family laws are destroying families.

I moved from Canada to the USA about 10 yrs ago to marry my husband and create a life here til he retires and we can return home. The system in the US is just as messed up as Canada’s on Family Law and they also strive to destroy not help families. To make a long story short I came here with my 8 yr. old daughter,(who thru the years made some very bad choices) ultimatly I asked for help from the system and was persucuted by the very same system that I asked for help. She chose to go into the system by creating lies that they know are lies, but they fail to hold her accountable for those lies. The system has put my family thru hell and although numerous lawyers agree with me, none will take on “the system” because the system has very deep pockets and it would take too long to fight them. I am now telling people with troubled teens NEVER to ask for help for them ’cause they will go through hell like they have never seen before!! So take heart its not only in Canada….its North America!!
Well done Georgialee. I am soooooo proud of you.
Very nice work done!
