New Tort of Harassment: Alberta Health Services v Johnston

Alberta Health Service employees experienced the brunt of the anti-vaccine and anti-masking sentiments triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Alberta Firms Make the Season Bright

As we enter the 2023-2024 holiday season, we at Law Matters would like to recognize and celebrate law firms that give back to the community. Across the province and every year, members of the legal community take numerous initiatives that serve and support the wider community. Beyond legal work, the legal community acts to improve the lives of those around them. This is particularly evident in smaller regions around Alberta, where law firms are an important part of the fabric of their communities. This year, we are spotlighting two regional firms as fine examples of the positive impact of the legal community on greater society.
