Care to elaborate? Why in general and whats specific about Canada compared to other countries?

Is it just based on your personal experience or as a statement for every Canadian?

Well, having a lawyer on retainer in Canada is like always having an umbrella - you might not need it all the time, but when you do, you'll be glad you have it.

Depends on the type of retainer. If it's one where you pay each month even if you don't use services, no. If it's where they just hang on to it until you need services and guarantees theyll take your call/ return emails, then sure.

Nah just erring on the side of caution with how callous the cops can be and turn you into a conviction. Case in point one of the videos where cops were trying to arrest teens based on jaywalking
