We are shocked and devastated by the senseless crime motivated by hatred and racism that was committed in our community on June 6. We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of those who were killed, and wish a full recovery to the surviving young boy who remains in hospital. We stand in solidarity with our Muslim partners, colleagues, clients, friends, and neighbours in rejecting Islamophobia in all forms, and demanding better for our community. Hatred has no place here. It diminishes every one of us. Each of us shares the responsibility for putting an end to it. We recognize that as members of the legal profession, our share of that responsibility is heightened. This unspeakable crime strikes at the very core of the Muslim community’s sense of security and will have a lasting impact. Although this tragedy can never be undone, we believe the goodness in our city will prevail. We commit to be better for each other, to demand better from each other and to share love, kindness and tolerance with one another. We must stand together to build a safer, more inclusive community for all.

brownfields.jpgThis week, Mondaq’s most popular environmental article, worldwide, was our  10 Things that You Need to Know about Contaminated Sites. According to Mondaq, it is the world’s largest legal news network, so this is quite a compliment.  Of course, faithful readers of this blog see the same articles before they reach Mondaq, plus special extra information such as this week’s presentation on  Tricks and Traps on Contaminated Sites, which is posted on our contaminated sites page. And we have a lot of faithful readers — more than 85,000 hits since we relaunched the blog on WordPress last year. Thank you so much for making us part of your week!  I want to particularly thank everyone who has posted a comment — it is much more interesting to be part of a conversation than to just send missives into cyberspace.
