Letters: Lawyers too discriminating against TWU law school

Dear Editor,

I am dumbstruck by your article [Lawyers vote on law school proposal, Oct. 2, Langley Advance].

All of this is because of their perceived notion that TWU is discriminating in contrast to Canadian law.

So let me understand these lawyers’ thinking: “We will discriminate against them, if they discriminate.”

Aren’t lawyers supposed to protect people against discrimination? Wouldn’t that be the same as a lawyer saying, if you kill then I will kill you?

Anyway, if B.C. lawyers vote to discriminate against TWU because (in their opinion) TWU discriminates, then I (as a business owner) can discriminate against lawyers for discriminating.

Can you see where this is going?

If lawyers will push this discrimination through against TWU, I will probably have signs outside my businesses stating that no B.C. lawyers are permitted on my premises.

Jack Poolman, Langley
