  1. I had an interesting case acting for a brother of a deceased where the deceased left everything to a community care facility and an employee of such facility. We argued that under the Community Care Facility Act. such bequest had to receive the consent of the Public Trustee which consent was not obtained. There is new BC legislation contemplated concerning undue influence reversing the onus of proof which will at least partially remedy this problem

  2. Very interesting David. What was the result of your argument?
