In the Essex riding where I live, the New Democrats nominated Marion Overholt, feminist lawyer, advocate for the poor,peace activist. Years ago I heard her say of the student lawyers she supervises in training, "We have to get to these students so they know they can practise law to do justice and not just see the call to the bar as a license to print money." Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! I have a candidate to vote for and support whole heartedly. Now if only we can get her to sing and play guitar.
