Lawyers have the most lucrative job in the country, but the job can be hard to get.
Some people can’t find a job.
And those that do have to fight to keep it.
As our sister station, The National Post, reports, there are new restrictions in place to limit the pool of lawyers and the compensation they can get.

Dying professions and the rise of death threatsLawyers who can’t keep a job can still get a degree, and the National Post reports that a number of those who can still do so have received death threats, including one former Supreme Court of Canada justice who was recently fired for refusing to work as a judge in a case about the federal government’s controversial death-penalty law.
A federal judge who tried to appeal the conviction of former Toronto police officer Mark Furlong has been threatened with death and rape threats, according to the Star.
The federal government is appealing a Supreme Court decision that overturned his conviction.
Lawyer: My client will be charged with a crime In the fall of 2018, a lawyer working for the Canadian Bar Association’s criminal defence section was threatened with rape, a Toronto man said in court documents filed last month.
The man, who asked not to be identified, said the threats began after he asked a lawyer on a public-interest case whether he should be charged as an accessory to murder.
“His reply was, ‘I don’t think you should charge my client with a murder.
He is innocent,'” the man told the court in a statement filed by lawyer James Martin.
In an interview, the lawyer said his client did not consider himself to be an accessory.
He said his clients’ concerns were justified and that they were entitled to expect their legal advice to be impartial and based on the facts of the case, including what happened to him.
“I don of course think that I am an accessory,” the lawyer told The National Posts.
One of the people who threatened the lawyer, in the statement, said: “I hope that my client suffers as a result of the threats I am making.
I am very sickened by the actions of the government, which is targeting the rights of lawyers to practice in this country.”
The lawyer who was targeted, Michael Sorkin, told The Post that the threats were not just about him but about all lawyers, and that he had no doubt the government would use the threat against him in court.
“I know that this is going to be used against other lawyers,” Sorkins told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“This is the kind of thing that the Canadian government is known for.”
Sorkins also said that he has received death and sexual-assault threats over the years.
He told the outlet that he feared for his safety.
An employee of the federal agency that regulates lawyers said it’s up to lawyers to protect themselves and their clients.
“We’re very protective of the rights and interests of our clients, but we also have to protect our staff,” said the source.
“There are very few ways to protect the rights or the interests of people.”
A spokesperson for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), which oversees border security, told the NationalPost that there have been a number “recent incidents” where “the public was in a situation where they were threatened with harm.”
“There are also a number incidents in which our officers have acted on that threat,” the spokesperson said.
“Those incidents are handled internally and as a matter of policy.”
The spokesperson said the CBSA does not comment on individual cases, but said that the agency “will take all reasonable steps to ensure that it is possible for the safety of our agents and their family members to be protected.”
One lawyer who has received threats told The Huffington Post that they are not intimidated.
It is not just lawyers who are worried about the threats, he said.
This is a very difficult time for me personally, as I am working on the death penalty cases, he told The Canadian Press.
But he said that it’s important to fight for his client’s rights, and he’s not taking his case lightly.
“The threats are very scary,” he said, adding that it could end his career.
“My client is a victim of hate, and I’m working to try to bring justice to him.”
