    June 8, 2016

    Alice in Ombudsmanland may well serve as an additional chapter for Lewis Carroll's famous Alice in Wonderland. The chapter could well be subtitled "In the Bureaucratic Rabbit Hole." But before beginning this weird and wondrous chapter, we need a bit of background.

  • My body: Is it really mine?Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    May 29, 2016

    Is my body really mine alone? The law thinks so … sometimes. But when it would cost the government money to help me take care of it, then the law tells me that my body belongs to everyone. Bizarre.

    May 29, 2016

    Six years ago on, one of my frequent visits to my native country, I was browsing in a large downtown Cairo bookstore.

    April 30, 2016

    Many people come to our law office after they have applied for renewal of their Permanent Residence Card or after they have applied for Canadian Citizenship.

    April 19, 2016

    This article was written before the Liberal government introduced Bill C-14, on assisted dying. On April 14, 2016 the Liberal government introduced the assisted dying bill. It is more restrictive than what the parliamentary committee that studied the matter proposed and may conceivably fail to meet the criteria outlined by the Supreme Court.

  • A strong US dollar, who is paying the price?The Canadian Charger
    April 19, 2016

    It appears that the current strong U.S. Dollar policy, resulting in an economic downturn in developing nations like Egypt, is not the first time the world has witnessed this scenario.

  • In Search of the Meaning of Life Dr. Mohamed Elmasry
    April 19, 2016

    Animals are innocent; they live by the book of nature. As far as we know, they don't ask themselves about the meaning of life. But for better or worse, we humans tend to ask that question a lot, especially as we grow older.
