In President Samaraseker's Q&A with the Globe and Mail, she refers to the BoG's "very fine legal counsel, our external legal counsel...". Last time I heard rumours of the numbers (a couple of years ago), the Bog's bill to Field Law was $1m per year. But lawyers mostly tell you what you want to hear, and in the BoG's case it has led to stupid decisions such as grieving against the AASUA for the CAUT investigation (and other things I can't tell you about, or I myself might be on the receiving end of a lawsuit).
BTW, I assume and expect, nay demand, that the BoG retract their ridiculous grievance after this revelation about the man they were defending.
From Persephone's Journal: The Economy - All this talk about "the economy" as if there's a war between capitalist free market and governmental programs, or as if any policy could be one size fits ...
