    Where's the conjecture? The right wing made the law. So when they say it will get abused and they're right about it, it just means they made a law knowing they would abuse it. Not sure what's so great about being right about that.
    The government introduced the law, not the people. Helen Lovejoy as a pop culture reference is not as a Christian moral authority, but for her catchphrase of "Somebody think of the children" in support of all the kneejerk BS, which is akin to the left.

    It is akin to the Barbara Bush era ‘moral crusaders’ who wanted kids to be protected from rock music and violent video games and other explicit imagery. She is a member of the Springfield Republican Party (when Sideshow Bob rigged the vote to “toughen up on crime, lower taxes and rule you like a king!”).

    Helen Lovejoy is a right winger through and through.

    Interesting issue on one of my complaints. Turns out the prosecutor is not a lawyer so the law society cant take a complaint. The prosecutors office has refused to acknowledge my complaint or return any of the calls.

    They wont even acknowledge that they've received a complaint. Law society says I have to deal with the prosecutors office which is going no where or Alberta Justice. I can't seem to find any official links from Alberta justice to contact. Maybe due to the election and the cabinet changes???

    hahahaha, thats funny..... CP not a lawyer.

    a) they are fucking around
    b) they have some tool 'pretending' to be a CP - because small town traffic court and no one gives a fuck? You might have stumbled on something thats not supposed to be talked about.
    c) they might mean someone who did not get called to the bar, but otherwise went to law school? (technically, not a lawyer)

    Serious question. Are you masturbating WHILE you have these arguments or just when you're thinking about them after?

    What's funny is that it was the dems who pushed for protection of kids from music. You know those parental advisory stickers? That was Tipper Gore. So I'm pretty sure kertejud2 just picked the wrong second lady and the wrong party. I'm still pissed that Twisted Sister got fucked over out of all that, for We're Not Gonna Take It. I don't even know why Tipper Gore is still with Al Gore, considering he invented the internet, which is way worse than Twisted Sister.

    In her case, probably both.

    I remember seeing this position being advertised and I was surprised that being a lawyer is not required for the job.

    Also, I’m not discounting the story of the OP about the prosecutor but, that kind of behavior doesn’t usually fly in court, someone, most likely the clerk or court orderly would let the judge or justice know and they deal with it prior to or during court.

    The law society said since traffic court is a non criminal matter that the prosecutors are not always a lawyer. The charges are not technically under the criminal code but under the highway traffic act.

    They said it sounds like my prosecutor is most likely a former police officer who's been acting as an agent for the crown.

    I'm not having any luck finding out who takes a complaint with a person who isnt a lawyer as the crown office has refused to acknowledge I exist and refused to return my calls.

    Have you thought about calling Points? I think they do free consultations and really you're just asking who to contact and not for them to get involved.

    I commend you for taking the time to actually run this up the flagpole. I'm sure they're ignoring you in hopes that you just give up. Fuck em.

    Maybe get in contact with Doug Schweitzer’s office (new Justin Minister).

    Sounds like a good opportunity for the new government to knock the establishment down a peg in a way that will be popular with every day people.

    Well that explains the attitude.

    Whether this person is a lawyer or not seems irrelevant imo. They are representing the provincial government in a court of law, and as such that makes Alberta Justice responsible for this person. I hope someone isn't blowing smoke up your ass about this, but I'm not sure what else could be going on? There's no way they can just let some goof ball that they employ act in whatever manner he deems fit, just because he isn't an official lawyer.

    looks like Doug's info isnt online yet to reach out. This may be a good next step until someone from the prosecutors office reaches out.

    out of curiousity, I wonder if it might be worthwhile contacting a media outlet about this, and see if this is a story they might like to run with? They love David VS Goliath stories, and when they can stick it to the government, they love it even more... And if they do pick it up, it would probably get you WAY more traction and results than you could reasonably expect on your own.
