oil tank removal topix

I don't want them going after me - a homeowner got taken through the cleaners in the court by suing contractor not that long ago. It was in the news - this was a defamation lawsuit and they ruled on something that anyone who is not a lawyer wouldn't understand. So much for freedom of speech! That's why I said go with Cerc. I dealt with them and they did a good job. They had a reader that checked for contaminants right in front of me so there was no way for them to say there is a leak when there is none. Otherwise the sample would have to go to the lab for testing and that can take up to 5 days to get the results back before the work is resumed. Frank  (Jan 10, 2013 | post #5)

Stanley Cup riot beauty queen pleads guilty

When asked why Laboissonniere did not appear at the hearing, her lawyer said, “To avoid this,” as he faced reporters and tv cameras. She should have been forced to appear, IMHO  (Jan 9, 2013 | post #1)

Six men charged with murder in Indian gang-rape case afte...

It's hard to stay neutral when you read news like that and resist the eye-for-an-eye mentality. But torturing those who have committed those horrendous acts brings the society to the same level. Just because it's the law it doesn't make it morally right. That being said, I'm sure I'd feel different if it were someone I knew personally that got hurt  (Jan 9, 2013 | post #28)

TransLink picks offshore firm to build next SeaBus

Offshore contracting is just a mater of economics. I don't necessarily agree with it, and I'd rather give jobs to Canadians, but it is what it is. We are all proud to say we would spend more money and give more jobs to Canadians, but when it comes to actually forking the money out, the stingy beats the bank every time  (Jan 8, 2013 | post #4)

Second snowboarder saved in past week

Germany has a good system - if you are smart enough to risk getting yourself into a situation that might require a rescue, you are responsible for the cost of that rescue. They'll take you through the cleaners if you refuse to pay too.  (Jan 8, 2013 | post #2)
