Legal Aid Cuts
Doug Ford’s Conservative government has severely slashed the Legal Aid budget in the province of Ontario. This has affected many services that both clients and Legal Aid staff may have taken for granted in the past. As well, it’s clear that less Legal Aid certificates will be issued in the future. The government may be more stringent in regards to scrutinizing the certificates and the expenses that are claimed
Nevertheless, I will continue to accept Legal Aid and continue to serve those that I can’t afford the higher rates on offer elsewhere, while offering superior work. I feel it is my responsibility to do so considering my humble beginnings. It’s only fair that I aid those that helped me get to where i am today.
