When the complaint is ‘he or she said’, we must not agree to coin-flip justice in an uncontrolled manner that picks winners and losers depending upon the identity politics profile of the accuser and accused. Having much experience with a career’s worth of complaints in depositions, hearing and negotiations, Toronto sexual assault lawyer says that ‘red flags that warn that a guiltless person stands accused’.

Without naming any specific accusation, the Toronto sexual assault lawyer provides these factors for consideration to the good-minded who will accept the possibility that innocence or guilt is not simply a matter of politics. He also reminds the reader that making these accusations political have permitted men like AL Franken, Les Moonves, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Clinton and Keith Ellison to get away from accountability. No one will care if they walk the walk till they talk the talk.

  • The accuser manipulates the press rather than the process.
  • The accuser multiplies releasing the accusation for a favorable situation.
  • The accuser strikes the process and does not prefer to participate.
  • When the accused’s good time to mount a defense is withdrawn from the legitimate status.
  • The accuser forces the accused to preserve himself or herself before reaching a final version.

What are Sexual Abuse and Sexual Assault? – The Opinion of Toronto Lawyer

You will not find any criminal code explanations of sexual abuse. It is a term that psychologist, therapists, psychiatrists and other health practitioners use to explain unwanted sexual contact. There are sexual offenses like sexual exploitation and sexual interference which deal with the offences including sexual acts done with young people, adult or children. The Toronto criminal lawyer says that in Canada, an individual below the age of sixteen cannot agree to sexual activity with an adult due to the exceptions for being close in age. A youngster of twelve or thirteen can agree to sexual activity with a person not more than 2 years than them. Fourteen or fifteen years old can go for sexual activity with a person not more than 5 years than them. According to Toronto sexual assault lawyer, sexual assault can be simply explained as an assault which is carried out in situations of a ‘sexual nature’ that breach the sexual integrity of the victim.

Auchmar was built in 1854 on land that the Honourable Isaac Buchanan had purchased

Auchmar was built in 1854 on land that the Honourable Isaac Buchanan had purchased two years previously. Its name was taken from the Auchmar estate on Loch Lomond, Scotland, which Buchanan’s family owned. Over the years the magnificent house on the Hamilton mountain was visited by such notables as Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir Allan MacNab, Pope John Paul II (when he was Cardinal) and the Prince of Wales during an 1860 Royal visit. Auchmar still stands on 10 acres of an eighty-six acre spread that Buchanan called Clairmont Park. It was considered an elegant example of gothic revival architecture with its arched windows, eleven chimneys, gables, and French doors.

Interview with Rob Hamilton

Rob Hamilton has been a lover of architecture for most of his life. He’s also a researcher and librarian by profession. It was this combination of interest and skill that led him to begin learning about the designer of the Hamilton’s iconic Herkimer Apartments, at the corner of Bay St. and Herkimer. Once underway, his research revealed the life of one of Hamilton’s great architects – William Palmer Witton. In the late 1890’s, Witton trained under Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler in Chicago. Sullivan is considered one of America’s great architects. Adler was known as a great structural engineer. Frank Lloyd Wright also worked for Sullivan. Witton returned to Hamilton and began his career as a designer of some of Hamilton’s most significant buildings. The exhibition features Rob Hamilton’s research that traces Witton’s career from his birth in Hamilton in 1871. It contains many images of his work throughout Hamilton, both past and present.. If you’re a Hamiltonian, you’ll be amazed at how many of the buildings you will recognize, even though you may never have heard of W. P. Witton.
