Ezra Meets The Truth, Lies To Its Face

Ezra's back in Dutch with the Alberta Law Society for an alleged breach of their professional standards.  He writes in his own defense:

To my knowledge the decision to prosecute me is unprecedented. ...I’m not even a practicing lawyer. I’m a journalist who happens to be trained in the law. 

Well, no, this is not the case.  From the proceedings of his appeal, some words from R. Sharma on behalf of the complaintant:

I think he's referring to Lund V. Boissoin, which wound up in 2012.

He's also not a journalist.

A bloviator? Yes.

A journalist?
Definitely not.

And yet Mr. Levant, by his own admission, is not a journalist. “I’m a commentator, I’m a pundit,” he explained to the judge. “I don’t think in my entire life I’ve ever called myself a reporter.”

Practising or no, he's certainly not much of a lawyer given his trainwreck history before the courts. I'm not aware of many or, for that matter, any other lawyers who have to go online begging for money to pay their arrears of court costs and damages.

am I the only one that thinks Ezra should sow a new career in landscaping. HE spreads the bs around well enough.

As a worker in the industry, I am truly hurt by that statement deb.
I spread real shit around, never bullshit and there is no way that "man of the people" Levant could handle the pace of a skilled profession like Landscaping. His soft hands and spineless torso would render anything close to actual manual labour beyond someone like him.
However should the effete fop ever wish to try his hand at the trade, on the minimum wage he favours for others, then I'd be willing to emply him until he breaks.

I do apologize Hareball, you are of course correct. Ezra not good for much, unless its selling the bs, that might get him a job:)
