Paranoid Canadian Lawyer

From Rick Westhead at the Toronto Star,

Toronto lawyer Richard Rodier is part paranoid, part Canadian patriot. Both personality traits surface when he discusses his partnership with Jim Balsillie and their efforts to bring a NHL team to Hamilton.

His age?
“Not relevant.”

His past clients?
“I can’t tell you. Solicitor-client privilege.”

His relationship with Balsillie?
“I don’t know. We work together.”

However, suggest that he and Balsillie would both be a lot closer to getting an NHL team if they were more diplomatic with the league, and Rodier warms considerably.
