Canadian Experience Class Now Open for Canadian Immigration Applicants

Canadian Experience Class Now Open for Canadian Immigration Applicants

(PRWEB) September 20, 2008

As of September 17, 2008, Citizenship and Immigration Canada is accepting applications for the newest category of Canadian immigration, the Canadian Experience Class. This fast-track option for temporary foreign workers and international graduates is a good news story in the Canadian immigration arena, says Canadian immigration lawyer David Cohen. These temporary residents can now more easily transition to Permanent Residents and, eventually Canadian citizens.

“Thanks to the new Canadian Experience Class of immigration, if you come to Canada as a temporary foreign worker or an international student, you can stay here for good — without interruption,” says Canadian immigration Attorney David Cohen.

Under the Canadian Experience Class, applicants are no longer required to leave the country in order to apply. They can continue to work in Canada while their Canadian Experience Class application is processed at the Canadian Visa Office in Buffalo, New York.

“These applicants are integral to the Canadian economy and work force. They’ve been educated and trained here, have valuable work experience; Canada wants to keep them. The immigration process shouldn’t interrupt their lives and their work — the Canadian Experience Class is a welcomed solution,” states Cohen.

Applicants must satisfy minimum requirements for Canadian work experience and/or Canadian education and they must have basic or moderate abilities in English or French, depending on the skill level of their occupation.

Now that Canadian Experience Class applications are being accepted, potential applicants can verify their eligibility and learn about the process for the Canadian Experience Class category.

Arrested for a Class A misdemeanor, Trial tomorrow!?

Question by Tiger Lilly: Arrested for a Class A misdemeanor, Trial tomorrow!?
Let me start where it started… I got arrested. But I’m not a bad person. I’m smart, in college, and a good daughter. My mom is sick, and can’t work. My dad has to pay for his new family. I work, but it’s not too much. I do volunteer work, and take care of my mom. You wouldn’t think I’d been arrested from looking at me, and I will NEVER mess with the law again. I hit rock-bottom that night, and I learned from it.

I got arrested 27 days ago for a Class A misdemeanor. I can’t pay for a lawyer. I’m willing to pay all my fines, do community service, all of that! I went to my first court date on December 4. They said to come back with a lawyer at my next court date, December 18, 8:00 AM.

That’s tomorrow morning, if you didn’t notice.

I’ve been talking to my Councilor (for lack of a better word. I’ve known her for years, I go to her for advice. She’s like an aunt, or another mom. She’s very smart.) about it, and she mentioned that her son-in-law is a lawyer. I gave her the details of my arrest, and he talked to me about it. He said that because my mom is sick, they should appoint me a public defender. I’m nervous. He says I should go tomorrow, and say “My mother is sick, I’m in college, and we can’t afford a lawyer.” and the judge will appoint me one.

I’m nervous, though, and I’m not sure. I don’t have much choice now… My plan is to get up, drink some coffee and smile. And pray for the best.

Has anyone been in a similar situation? What happened? Any law enforcement officials have any input? Please help! I can post more details if you need them. Thanks so much!
I’m 19 years old. I forgot to say that.
Shoplifting. I stole. And I’m ashamed.
I know there is no excuse for theiving! I know that! I know no one will believe this, but it was the first time I ever tried to steal anything. And I got caught. I’m ashamed that I’ve embarassed myself, and my family this way. I made my mom cry, because she didn’t raise me like that. I know there’s no excuse, I was just trying to give background information.

This was a first offence.
Thank you all so much! Yes, it is a hearing, not a trial. Oops. I’ve got 7.5 hours to be there, so I’m going to bed now, but I’ll check here again before I leave in the morning! Again, thank you all so much, feel free to IM or email with advise.
And yes, I’m guilty, so I’ll plead guilty, accordingly. I forgot to say that too.
Just got done. They won’t give me a public defender. My boyfriend (who had to bail me out after I got arrested) paid my $ 500 bond in under two hours. The guy (prosecutor, I’m pretty sure) was kind of a jerk to me, and said that I “was bonded out in under two hours, so I’m pretty sure you can afford an attorney.” When I said it wasn’t my money, it was my boyfriend’s, he suggested my boyfriend buy me a lawyer. He also let me know that the only way I’ll get a public defender is if I let them re-arrest me. Thanks, dude.

Back to talking to my family-friend’s son-in-law. I hope he can help. I’m leaving my question open a little while longer, so keep leaving advice! Thanks everyone so far.

What would be an “ethical violation” according to rich class legal industry’s Office of Lawyer Regulation?

by LordKhan

Question by Pluto C. Rat: What would be an “ethical violation” according to rich class legal industry’s Office of Lawyer Regulation?
Would “ethical violation” indicate that a rich class lawyer must take actual physical action in followup to his sexual harassments?

“The Office of Lawyer Regulation, which oversees lawyer conduct, office quietly closed the case against Kratz in March without a formal review, saying his behavior was inappropriate but didn’t appear to be an ethical violation.”

Now, I’m not suggesting preferential treatment for the rich by the rich — I’m loudly ACCUSING it. And by all means, don’t bother with some rich class supporting argument that the lawyer must be under the same employer as his sexual harassment victims — it’s been some time since I bit on US rich class double-speak legislation. I go on logic, reality, fact — and generally good eyesight.
@PIG – Send me some red roses, which imply “respect and courage.”
“Red Roses symbolize… Respect, Courage…”

You Pluto are one of the very few America haters whom I can respect.

You at least had the courage of your convictions and left the country you so despise.

Class Action Law Firm takes on BMW for Systematically Concealing Safety Risks of Defective High Pressure Fuel Pumps and Turbo Chargers

Flawed engine design of BMW twin turbo models leaves consumers stranded

Sacramento, CA (Vocus) October 5, 2010

Sacramento, California based class action law firm Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, LLP, recently filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of thousands of individuals who own various BMW vehicles released between the years of 2007-2010. The lawsuit, No. CV10-2257 SI filed in the Northern District of California, seeks to compel BMW to initiate a recall in order to replace all of the high pressure fuel pumps (HPFP) in the affected vehicles.

According to the complaint, in 2006, BMW announced with much fanfare the development of its new N54 twin turbo engine. BMW touted the new engine as incorporating state of the art technology that included dual turbo chargers and a newly developed fuel injection system. BMW represented to the public that this new technology would eliminate ‘turbo lag,’ a common problem in turbocharged vehicles, and that its new state of the art fuel injection system greatly increased the performance and fuel efficiency of its vehicles.

Plaintiffs allege that the new engines that were so highly touted by BMW in fact contain serious design flaws that render the vehicles unsafe to drive. There are essentially two design flaws at the center of the case. First, the plaintiff asserts that BMW’s new fuel injection system that supposedly incorporates a new ‘state of the art’ fuel pump actually malfunctions at an alarming high rate. As a result, many BMW owners have had to repeatedly replace their fuel pumps, sometimes within 1,000 miles of vehicle ownership.

Lead attorney on the case, Stuart Talley of Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, noted, “When these fuel pumps fail, the car comes to a complete stop or loses substantial power. If this happens while someone is driving on a highway at high speeds, this can create a very serious safety hazard. We believe the defect is so significant that it makes these cars unsafe to drive.”

The second problem relates to the BMW turbo chargers. Specifically, the complaint alleges that owners of the affected vehicles were told that BMW’s new engine had eliminated ‘turbo lag.’ ‘Turbo lag’ is the delay between the time that driver of a vehicle presses the accelerator and the time that turbo chargers on the engine essentially ‘kick in’ to provide added power to the engine. However, shortly after the vehicles were released, BMW began to receive complaints from owners that they were hearing strange noises from the engine along with a delay in throttle response. BMW eventually discovered that these problems were the result of a design defect in the turbo chargers.

Plaintiffs allege, however, that rather than repair the defective turbo chargers, BMW implemented a secret ‘software fix’ to hide the problems from consumers. Any time a consumer brought their BMW in for repair or routine maintenance, BMW would ‘upgrade’ the vehicle’s software. This software tweak kept the turbo chargers from operating at full capacity, ensuring that their defects would go undetected.

Apparently owners aren’t happy. A number of user generated forums, petitions and blogs have cropped up criticizing BMW for their handling of the issue. On the BMW Blog, several consumers reported their BMW’s going into ‘limp mode.’ They also complained of excessive power loss and ‘turbo lag,’ the very condition BMW said it had eliminated with its ‘state of the art engine.’ The plaintiff’s complaint seeks to force BMW to repair the defective turbo charges and/or reimburse consumers for the diminution in value to the vehicles.

Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff have demonstrated their dedication to protecting the legal rights of consumers, as well as their ability to devote substantial resources through trials involving large corporations. Their product liability lawyers have represented thousands of victims of defective vehicles and dangerous products in cases throughout the United States, generating hundreds of millions of dollars in lawsuit recoveries for their clients and the classes they have represented.
