Law Society of Ontario (LSO) a Pedophile Ring? Racism, misogyny *and* enabling sexual abuse of children? Ottawa lawyer, John David Coon, in custody for sex crimes against four-year old daughter of one of his clients. LSO documents reveal they gave Coon licence to practise law despite knowing of his prior criminal conviction for sexually assaulting another child. *And* LSO licenced Donald (“Donnie”) Davidovic knowing of his child porn conviction, deemed him to be of “good character” *and* let convicted pedophile senior lawyer Martin Schulz keep his licence to practice law! How grateful I am I have no children!

It gets more vile and demented. There’s another known convicted child sex offender the law society gave licence to:

2017: Once-imprisoned lawyer (for child pornography), Ronald Davidovic, one step closer to getting his licence to practise law in Ontario, Law Society of Ontario (previously LSUC) rules he is of ‘good character’ 

… Davidovic says he chose to apply in Ontario because there are all sorts of impediments in Florida that make it difficult to live day to day for someone convicted of such an offence.

… He says he plans to pursue criminal law in Ontario, as he has a unique perspective that will give him more empathy for those who have made mistakes in their lives.Or, to get easy access to children, given to him by the law society?

Snap above taken May 6, 2022 from https://www.ronalddavidovic.com/ – appears to be the website for the law practice for past criminally convicted child pornster, Ronald Davidovic, aka Ronnie. The website does not admit his criminal past anywhere that I could find, or state that he was convicted in Florida for child porn (pedophiles are well known to re-offend).

2017: Law Society tribunal rules Florida sex offender can practise law in Ontario

A registered Florida sex offender, who spent two years in prison on a child pornography conviction, has been deemed to be of “good character” for a licence to practise law in Ontario.

Ronald Ori Davidovic, 44, appeared before a three-member panel of the Law Society of Upper Canada tribunal last December in what is known as a “good character hearing,” where he sought to prove that he is rehabilitated and committed to upholding the law if allowed to practise.

Counsel for the law society ultimately decided not to oppose his application, and Davidovic’s wish was granted by the panel in a 2-1 decision released last week. Law Society! WTF!!?

… But the dissenting panel member, criminal defence lawyer Paul Cooper, found that there simply wasn’t enough evidence of rehabilitation before the tribunal, and said he would not have granted Davidovic’s application.

“In this case, the applicant’s statements of regret at the hearing focused on the nightmare he suffers or the shame he suffers and as he describes in his testimony the ‘handicap’ of him being labeled as a consumer of child pornography by the community.

Mr. Davidovic failed to recognize what he has done and only provides lip service to any victim empathy,” Cooper wrote.

“There is insufficient evidence that the applicant is rehabilitated. The misconduct was sexually motivated and he possessed a magnetic attraction. He has been diagnosed with non-specified paraphilia and this diagnosis remains unresolved.”

He had practised in Florida for eight years, including estate and financial planning and then as general counsel “for a large telecommunications company.” He was permitted to resign from the Florida bar after his conviction.

Davidovic told the law society panel that he has many close relatives in Toronto, and wants to practise criminal law. “He believes that his experience will enable him to assist others,” the majority wrote. No wonder the self-regulated legal profession in Canada is in abusive chaos!

Davidovic began viewing child porn in 1998, according to the statement of fact, and admitted to the panel having viewed hundreds or thousands of images….

A therapist who saw Davidovic after his release from prison told the law society that he “worked very hard to understand his disorder,” took complete responsibility and his chance of reoffending is small. But it’s still there, and a vile demented misogynistic legal system is putting another known pedophile into a position of power, setting him up to offend again and again and again and again and again and again….

… “As a lawyer, occupying a crucial role in upholding the rule of law, the applicant’s offence constituted a breach of trust.”

The panel chose not to rely on evidence in the agreed statement of fact from an Anglican reverend and “analytical psychologist” who began seeing Davidovic in the year preceding his time in prison and after his release. …

How many lawyers and judges are pedophiles?

Does Your Lawyer have a Criminal Record? That’s possible in Ontario, Canada by Donald Best, Oct 23, 2016, donaldbest.ca

Donald Best, former Sergeant, Detective, Toronto Police

Welcome to the Province of Ontario – where convicted pedophiles and proven thieves meet the ‘Good Character’ standard for licensing by the Law Society of Upper Canada.

Yet another convicted and jailed pedophile has been approved to continue as a licensed Ontario lawyer practicing in the area of ‘Family Law’.

Senior lawyer Martin Schulz will be allowed to continue to practice family law – despite being sentenced to 45 days in jail after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography.

The Crown prosecutor dropped more serious charges as part of a plea bargain.

Schulz had hundreds of child sex photos and movies on his computer. Think of the ruined lives, the devastation, the pain of these little children – but the Law Society Tribunal decided about Schulz:

“We find no reasonable grounds for believing that a significant risk of harm to members of the public exists.”

September 14, 2016 Decision of Law Tribunal members Sabita Maraj, Susan T. McGrath (chair), Frederika ‘Freddy’ M. Rotter.

The tribunal found that Schulz could continue to practice family law with a restriction that he could not represent children and would not be alone with any person under the age of 18 years old.

As a spokesperson for the Law Society stated, a past criminal record – even for child sexual assault – doesn’t preclude someone from receiving a licence to practice law.

If that is the law society standard, then that is the standard. After all… lawyers alone regulate and set the standards for the legal profession.

The lesson for the Ontario public is this:

Your lawyer might have a criminal record. The Law Society won’t tell you… and you probably won’t know.

And, as was shown in the recent Toronto Star ‘Broken Trust’ investigation of the law society, your lawyer might be one of the hundreds of lawyers who in the past few years committed serious criminal offenses against their clients, but were never charged because the law society covered it up.

Law Society Tribunal members who approved licensing of pedophile Martin Schultz: (L-R) Sabita Maraj, Susan T. McGrath (chair), Frederika ‘Freddy’ M. Rotter.

What are the Law Society’s senior benchers and Tribunal thinking to allow convicted pedophiles and other persons with criminal records to practice as lawyers? Have they lost touch with reality? They have certainly lost touch with Canadians.

By continuing to license persons with criminal records, and by covering up hundreds of crimes and other acts of wrongdoing by lawyers – the Law Society of Upper Canada is seriously undermining the reputation of Ontario’s legal profession.

How many more child-abusing lawyers lurk protected in law society sewers across Canada?

Ottawa lawyer J.D. Coon jailed for molesting six-year-old girl by Gary Dimmock, Jun 11, 2020, Ottawa Citizen

Lawyer self-regulator, the LSO, sure knows how to licence pedophiles to practice law. How many of these heinous lawyer criminals become judges?

John David Coon fled the country a month before Ottawa police came calling in 2014. For five years, he lived as a fugitive and taught at a children’s school. Last summer, he turned himself in to authorities in Bangkok and returned to Ottawa under police escort.

He pleaded guilty to sexual interference in April after an agreed statement of facts was read into court.

At his sentencing on Wednesday, the court finally heard from the victim’s family in a moving statement that was read into the record by regional sexual violence Crown attorney Louise Tansey.

In the statement drafted by the mother of the child, she said she felt exploited at a most vulnerable time. The sex crimes against her daughter left her shattered and angry.

“You made a mess of things. You lied to me, used me, and left me more vulnerable than I already was. That anger turned to wrath when I learned that you preyed upon my child and then ran like a coward.

“Your actions have caused a major upheaval in our lives, the structure and values changed overnight … I became paranoid for my family’s safety and because of that, I had lost some relationships, both personal and professional,” the mother wrote in her victim-impact statement.

The mother said it was like a firehose of emotions when she heard Coon, 56, was back in town after surrendering.

“Since you have returned, so has the emotions of feeling anxious and vulnerable. The knowledge that you are in the same city now, has only amplified them.”

Court heard that the mother has too many restless nights to count, then there are the anxiety attacks and that lost focus at work.

Still, she said: “I am determined to follow through with seeing (that) justice is served for my child and myself. So that we may get closure and move on from the traumatic past that you continue to represent. Therapy has been a great aid in our road to recovery.”

After Coon is released from jail, he’s banned for 10 years from being anywhere near places where children gather — like playground, pools and schools. A sample of his DNA will also be taken for the national data bank and he’ll be listed on the sex-offender registry for 10 years. Will LSO grant him licence to practice law again if he applies? Or will he move to another jurisdiction, and apply there, same as David Davidovic did?

Coon will also be on probation for three years after he serves his 22-month sentence.

He was credited for pre-sentence custody so his remaining sentence is 135 days. Privileged fucker.

The former lawyer told the little girl that he loved her and to keep his advances secret — otherwise he’d get into trouble. But she didn’t keep it a secret, and in a September 2013 police interview, Coon denied the accusations. Another lying lawyer.

Ottawa police then called Coon and asked him to turn himself in on the child-sex crimes, but he fled the country and got a work permit and went to Cambodia where he got a job as a schoolteacher.

Police sent a patrol officer over to his house in January 2014 but Coon was long gone, having fled the country four weeks earlier.

Ottawa police got a warrant for his arrest and told the press at the time they feared there could be more victims.

Coon was arrested when he returned to Canada on Aug. 3, 2019, on an international flight to Vancouver.

It’s not the first time Coon has pleaded guilty to a sex crime.

He admitted sexually assaulting a girl in 1991 but was granted a conditional discharge, which means he was spared a criminal record after 15 months probation. Privileged fucker

Though the Ontario Law Society knew about his child-sex crime history, Coon was granted a licence and went on to specialize in child-protection law. Ultra privileged fucker.

The court heard that a mitigating factor at sentencing was that Coon pleaded guilty and spared his victim and her family from testifying at trial.

A few of the comments:

Douglas Mason:

no there’s nothing wrong with our justice system . 22 months for him , a lifetime of pain for the victim and family — disgusting — Yup. I expect he’ll get out sooner than that. Canada’s rapist/pedophile enabling legal/judicial industry needs Pedophile Coon back practicing law as soon as possible to help other pedophiles/rapists escape “justice.” And, to eventually get appointed to a court to work hard keeping pedophiles free and raping kids. catholic church has lots of raping priests it wants raking in donations in churches across the land to keep the piles of gold piling higher in the vatican. rotting in prison won’t roll money in.

Jack Porter:

22 month is not long enough Of course not, that’s the judicial point!

Lynne Burns:

The Ontario Law Society is guilty of dereliction of duty and they should be put on trial for their actions (or lack of). It is their JOB to make sure that this kind of thing does not happen. But to continue to accredit a man who was convicted of child-sex crimes is just unbelievable. Any other organization who protected its people like this would have been under a court-ordered disbandment.

Annie Dee:

~Though the Ontario Law Society knew about his child-sex crime history, Coon was granted a licence and went on to specialize in child-protection law.~ – This can`t be serious. Please tell me it`s not serious. What is WRONG with people??????

Robert Smith:

Unfortunately, a missed opportunity to jail him in 1991 allowed him to commit another heinous crime.

Disgraced Ottawa lawyer turned child-sex fugitive taught kids while on the lam by Gary Dimmock, February 11, 2020, Ottawa Citizen

When disgraced Ottawa lawyer J.D. Coon fled the country as a child-sex fugitive in December 2013, he went to Cambodia to teach at a children’s school.

Coon, who specialized in child-protection law, was accused back in September 2013 of molesting a young Ottawa girl. The police theory is that the defence lawyer molested the girl, told her he loved her and to keep it a secret.

Coon, then 49, denied the accusations in a September 2013 police interview and say he took a polygraph in November 2013. Ottawa police then called Coon and asked him to turn himself in on charges of sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching.

But instead of turning himself into police, Coon got a work permit and went to Cambodia where he got a job as a schoolteacher.

Police sent a patrol officer over to his house in January 2014 but Coon was long gone, and in fact had left the country four weeks earlier.

Ottawa police then obtained a warrant for his arrest and told the media at the time that they feared there could be more victims.

Coon was arrested when he returned to Canada on Aug. 3 on an international flight to Vancouver. Since then his child-sex crimes case has been making its way through the Ottawa Courthouse, with Coon most recently appearing on Feb. 6. No trial dates have been set.He’s a lawyer! He’s a man! In Caveman Canada! The courts will find a way to let him off, likely intentionally delaying and then using the Jordan ruling. Pedophiles and rapists, notably if lawyers/men in positions of power, get specially protections from our churches and courts, especially in Canada. It’s heinous and unforgivable.

Coon pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a girl in 1991 but was granted a conditional discharge, which means he was spared a criminal record after 15 months’ probation.

Though the Law Society knew about his child-sex crime history, Coon was granted a licence to practise law and went on to specialize in child-protection only to be accused of molesting another young girl.

Coon also revealed to the Law Society that he spent a lot of time and money “cruising red-light districts and hiring prostitutes.”

Susan Tonkin, a spokeswoman for the Law Society, told the Ottawa Citizen in 2016 that a criminal record doesn’t preclude someone from a getting a licence to practise law in Ontario.

“The Law Society recognizes that people can rehabilitate themselves.Where’s the evidence that pedophiles successfully rehabilitate themselves? It’s well known that even after extensive professional treatment, “rehabilitated” pedophiles sexually harm and rape children again and again and again. It’s no wonder catholic church authorities, including popes, hide pedophile priests via their evil “silent shuffle” with too many judges (also pedophiles?) enabling it. Is this why law societies licence known convicted pedophiles that the legal industry kept out of jail, record-free? To legally serve churches, notably the catholic church, and other extremely wealthy, powerful rapists, making sure these cruel abusive sexual deviants remain out of prison and able to repeat offend? A licensing hearing panel is concerned with the ‘present’ and a licensing applicant’s ability to establish that he/she is of good character at the time of the hearing,” she said at the time.

Coon abruptly stopped practising law in late 2013 amid the Ottawa child-sex investigation, fled the country, lived as a fugitive for five years and is now in jail awaiting prosecution for his latest sex charges involving children.

His sudden departure from law left some clients in the lurch — including a developmentally delayed man. In that case, another defence lawyer, who is now a judge, filed a pro bono affidavit that said Coon was trying to get the client to plead guilty even though they had maintained his innocence. Coon never even bothered to pick up the client’s disclosure, according to court filings.

Coon’s licence has since been revoked.

Fugitive Ottawa lawyer arrested on sex crime charges by Shaamini Yogaretnam, August 7, 2019, Ottawa Citizen

A disgraced Ottawa lawyer turned fugitive wanted for sex crimes against the child of a former client is now in custody after more than five years on the lam.

John David Coon, a one-time criminal defence and family lawyer, abruptly stopped practising law late in 2013 amid an Ottawa police sexual assault investigation. In July of that year, Ottawa cops had started probing an alleged assault on a child.

By January of 2014, sex crime detectives had a warrant for his arrest, believing Coon, then 49, had sexually assaulted a four-year-old girl – the daughter of one of his clients.

But by then, police believe, he had already fled the country – maybe to Cambodia or Thailand.

Over the long weekend, Coon was taken into custody by Ottawa police at the Ottawa airport on Saturday, after coming back into the country via an international flight to Vancouver, where he was arrested. He appeared in court Sunday.

Coon was called to the Ontario Bar in 2006 and he had a combined child protection defence and criminal defence practice.

In February 2016, while still wanted on the charges for which he is now in jail, Coon officially had his licence to practise law revoked by the Law Society of Upper Canada. According to the Law Society, Coon, who ran a practice specializing in child protection, engaged in professional misconduct by failing to co-operate with multiple Law Society investigations.

That ruling revealed a history of sexual misconduct, and even a previous conviction for sexually assaulting a child.

In 2014, the Law Society had suspended his licence after a complaint from the Children’s Aid Society. Coon, at the time, was already under investigation by the regulatory body after a female client alleged that she had sex with the lawyer in his office.

Law Society documents related to that suspension also revealed that Coon was given a licence to practise law in Ontario despite a history that included a prior criminal conviction for sexually assaulting a child.

According to the documents, Coon revealed in 2004 to the Law Society that he had been convicted of sexually assaulting a friend’s 12-year-old daughter in 1991.

Coon was given a conditional discharge and 15 months probation, meaning he wouldn’t have a criminal record if he followed his court-ordered conditions and lived a law-abiding life.

Coon also told the Law Society that in the late 1980s he was attending a 12-step group program to address the “inordinate amount of time and money he spent cruising red light districts and hiring prostitutes.”

Coon is charged with sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching.

He had remained one of Ottawa police’s most wanted. Reference check for white supremacist Law Society of Ontario?

He is next scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

Disgraced Ottawa lawyer appears in court wearing a mask by Aedan Helmer with files from Shaamini Yogaretnam, August 7, 2019, Ottawa Citizen

Disgraced Ottawa lawyer John David Coon appeared in court Wednesday wearing an orange jail-issued jumpsuit, his face obscured by a white dust mask as he was held in custody on charges of sex crimes against a child.

The one-time criminal defence and family lawyer is believed to have fled the country and spent more than five years on the lam before he was arrested over the long weekend.

Coon was taken into custody by Ottawa police at the Ottawa airport on Saturday after returning to the country via an international flight to Vancouver. He made his first court appearance Sunday, and appeared again Wednesday before Ontario Court Justice Rommel G. Masse.

Coon said little in court, acknowledging the judge and thanking him for allowing brief time to consult with his lawyer Jenny McKnight on a private call.

McKnight declined to comment on the three charges her client faces, which include sexual assault, sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching.

“I believe that there’s a lot to be said, but I’m asking people to be patient because now is not the time,” McKnight said outside court following the hearing.

She would not elaborate on the circumstances that brought Coon back to Canada, whether her client was arrested by foreign authorities, or whether he returned voluntarily intending to turn himself in.

“There will be a time to say this and other things,” McKnight replied.

Coon had remained one of Ottawa police’s most wanted.

Police said investigators believe there could be more victims. No wonder the legal profession in Canada fights so hard to stay self regulated!

Sounds too familiar! Like AER’s outside legal counsel, Glenn Solomon, and his settle and shut up advice to make sure polluting oil/frac companies can keep going down the street to pollute and harm communities again and again and again and again

Coon also told the Law Society that in the late 1980s he was attending a 12-step group program to address the “inordinate amount of time and money he spent cruising red light districts and hiring prostitutes.”

A publication ban was put in place to shield the identity of the victim, and Coon was ordered to not communicate with several people involved in the case.

He is scheduled to appear next in court August 14.

So the Law Society in Ontario allows someone with a conviction for sexual assault on a child to join them?,? I thought there was a code of conduct for lawyers.

Ontario’s Law Society normalizing convicted pedophiles as lawyers by Donald Best, April 3, 2017, donaldbest.ca

A Law Society Tribunal has once again approved a convicted and jailed pedophile to practice law in Ontario. Not only that, the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) supported the pedophile’s application during the tribunal hearing, agreeing that he meets the ‘good character’ standard for licensing. (Tribunal’s decision is here 425kb pdf)

With this latest in a series of similar approvals, it is apparent that the licensing of pedophiles and other convicted criminals as lawyers is, effectively, LSUC policy. Has the law society turned down any pedophile yet? I haven’t been able to find such a case in the archives.

Lawyer had child-sex videos showing 5-year-olds

Pedophile lawyer Ronald Davidovic

This time the pedophile applicant was Canadian-born Ronald Ori Davidovic – who was a Florida lawyer in 2004 when he was arrested and convicted for possessing and viewing thousands of child-sex videos and photos where the victims were as young as five years old.

That’s right – Davidovic is excited by five-year-old children. For years while he was a Florida lawyer, he collected child sex videos showing pre-pubescent children being abused in sexual acts.

Sentenced to five years in prison, and released after three, Davidovic is permanently registered as a sex offender the United States, but now wants to practice law in Ontario.

The Law Society of Upper Canada just declared convicted pedophile Ronald Davidovic to be ‘of good character’ and gave him the approval and support he needs to be licensed – this despite a medical diagnosis that his risk of re-offending is as high as 8.4%. The phrase ‘compulsive magnetic attraction to child pornography’ appears in Davidovic’s medical record.

Pedophile lawyer John David Coon

Will the law society pay damages when a known compulsive pedophile attacks a child while serving in his capacity as a lawyer? Of course not! LSO has heaps of dirty lying lawyers on hand to protect its evil and evil money It happened before when the law society licensed known pedophile John David Coon, who again attacked a child while performing his duties as a lawyer.

Not having learned its lesson, the Law Society continues to license other pedophile lawyers (see Martin Schultz) with little regard for the public safety or the reputation of the legal profession.

This time, Chair Raj Anand and member Jan Richardson crafted the tribunal’s decision. LSUC prosecutor Amanda Worley also supported the applicant Davidovic.

The one dissenting voice against the pro-pedophile lobby was Tribunal member and criminal defense lawyer Paul M. Cooper.

The backgrounds of the individual tribunal members make for an interesting study.    

Tribunal Chair Raj Anand’s work centers around the human rights of minorities as well as youths, the mentally ill, drug addicts and other persons living on the edges of society. Jan Richardson has made a career of working with the homeless.

Could it be that Anand’s and Richardson’s natural inclination to view people as victims has clouded their judgment and caused them to ignore their duty to protect the public and the reputation of Ontario lawyers?

Odd man out Paul M. Cooper is a criminal lawyer who, like all criminal lawyers, probably has a healthy dose of reality when it comes to sorting the wolves from the sheep.

Mr. Cooper’s dissenting position is supported by law and common sense, but he was outnumbered by those who put children and families at risk to promote their social agendas and personal beliefs that everyone is good at heart and can be redeemed.

Law Society Tribunal members who approved licensing of pedophile Martin Schultz: (L-R) Sabita Maraj, Susan T. McGrath (chair), Frederika ‘Freddy’ M. Rotter.

There’s nothing new here, really. As the Toronto Star’s ‘Broken Trust’ series revealed, the Law Society of Upper Canada has covered up and whitewashed hundreds of cases where lawyers committed criminal acts against their clients.

The law society’s ‘good character’ licensing standard includes thieves, pedophiles and fraudsters. That is the way it is because the legal profession in Ontario lacks independent civilian oversight, transparency or outside accountability – and continues to ignore the profession’s duty to the public trust.

It is time to bring Ontario’s legal profession into compliance with modern standards of independent oversight and external accountability.

A few of the comments:

Grace M Joubarne October 23, 2018

The reason that decades of legal and judicial abuse have gone unchecked has been because we insist on a ‘commercial’ system of justice, where there is no ‘humanity’ or ‘equity’, only fictitious legal entities who swear allegiance to the corporation called the Crown (owned by the Vatican City), writing fictitious laws that no human being can survive.

In the commercial/admiralty system, ALL regulations and laws are designed to create commercial opportunities…revenue for corporations.

What is needed and what we were guaranteed in 1976 with the signing of the International Covenants (ICCPR) and (ICESCR), which the SCC has said are binding on Canada, was a common law court which would evolve going forward from 1976, to prioritize the individual human being. We were entitled to common-law courts manned by the People.

But we were told that only those studied in ‘law’ could provide justice, when the fact is that the lower courts rarely follow precedent, most ignore binding Supreme Court of Canada decisions, almost all ignore witness tampering by lawyers and frauds on the court, and in fact, simply and unabashedly re-construct legislation on the spot that they don’t agree with or that is ‘against’ the government.

Yet, after 1976, we were guaranteed courts that would stand between the government atrocities and the individual to protect the individual.

What we have is a court system that perpetrates fraud and abuse on the People to advance corporate government objectives.

What is needed is a whole new system of governance…a government that swears allegiance to the People and not HerMajesty/Crown. Iceland got free, so can we, but we are stuck in a mindset where we can ‘fix’ a system that works beautifully for the Crown Corporation and the Provincial Corporation and the Municipal Corporations…. Trouble is, Canada has a hideous record for incest. How many powerful Canadians are pedophiles? In my experience, our legal and judicial industries were set up to protect the wants and evil of the rich and powerful, notably the catholic church. Raping children is one of their wants and they get what they want. The rest of us get shit for legal service, no matter how many hundreds of thousands of dollars we pay our lawyers. We get even worse shit from our judges.

No turning back for L-Suck, April 4, 2017:

Why wouldn’t the Law Society of Upper Canada want pedophiles as lawyers? They give law licenses to every other type of criminal and coverup when one of their club gets sticky fingers in the trust funds or gets caught lying to clients or the court. Why shouldn’t Ontario’s legal profession include kiddy diddlers too? The law society crossed a whole lot of lines a long time ago and there is no turning back.

Judy Gayton April 4, 2017:

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. What can the public do about this Donald?

Donald Best April 4, 2017:

Hi Judy,

That is a great question – and I think I might finally have an answer.

All of us who have been abused by the legal profession tell our stories individually – and there are thousands of similar stories online.

It is good that we proclaim the truth about the disturbing amount of misconduct within the legal profession by both lawyers and former lawyers now called ‘judges’.

It is also good when we expose the coverups by law societies and the courts as the profession protects its members even at the expense of the credibility of the justice system.

It is good that we shame the legal profession for its arrogance and abandonment of the rule of law and the public trust.

But where does that get us, apart from raising awareness with the public about the extent of the corruption?

As well as exposing the reality of the legal profession, we need to communicate what will stop the abuse. We need to clearly state what changes Canadians desire. And, we must change our ‘desires’ or ‘wishes’ for the legal community to demands for change.

Canadians should demand that the laws be changed so the legal profession complies with modern standards of independent oversight and external accountability.

It is no longer acceptable to have this powerful profession that exerts influence and authority into every area of Canadian life – overseeing itself without transparency, independent civilian oversight and external accountability to Canadians at large.

We don’t allow the police to operate without external oversight and accountability, and neither should the legal profession that is far more powerful and far more subject to abuse of authority than any police officer or policing organization.

Canadians must DEMAND laws that will force upon the legal profession real transparency, independent civilian oversight and external accountability to Canadians at large.

Self-regulation of lawyers must end.

Lawyer John David Coon wanted on allegations of sex assault, Police say alleged sex assault involving minor took place while Coon was performing duties as lawyer by Kristy Nease, Jan 17, 2014, CBC News

… As of Friday evening, the Law Society of Upper Canada [operating name changed to Law Society of Ontario January 1, 2018. “Upper” not looking too good in a society enabling pedophilia?] listed Coon as a privately practicing lawyer at Addelman Baum Gilbert on Albert Street.

The society’s listing said Coon had no discipline history and no restrictions on his practice.

A profile of Coon on Addelman Baum Gilbert’s website has been removed, but a cached version of the website says Coon was called to the Ontario bar in 2006 and that he began to work for the firm in 2011.

“He has a combined child protection defence and criminal defence practice. JD was already a busy, thriving and respected defence lawyer when he joined [the firm] as an associate in 2011,” the cached website says.

Reached at the firm on Friday evening, lawyer Jason Gilbert confirmed Coon started working at Addelman Baum Gilbert in late 2011. …
