    I just got back from 10 days on Vancouver Island. Congrats Bret! As for Hamilton.. it's awesome. What Kryl is saying is exactly what everyone who drives over the skyway without actually coming into the city says. Hamilton is a city on the grow with lots of great restaurants and other shit like that popping up every day. Property values have also been steadily increasing. It's a great investment.

    Little Tristan is on the way!!
  12. I doubt she had time to think about that. this is an accident but since there was also large amount of alcohol involved, there was probably also a lessened amount of logical control. There is definitely grounds for a verdict here but it is going to be nasty if it makes it to court. The majority of lawsuits never see a judge as insurance companies settled.
  13. I hear you and it’s a rock and a hard place split second panicked decision. Ultimately in that moment, It doesn’t seem like she was willing to take a burnt hand to save the lady’s face. It’s going to cost her.
  14. True...9 pm though...$5 says they were all 'tipsy'...Stoopid $hit happens.
  15. She gonna get paid...
  16. Maybe. But it also sounds like she just panicked when all of a sudden flames were coming out of something that she was holding, and she just tossed it away from her not thinking where exactly she was tossing it.
  17. Sounds like his girlfriend is a dumbass.
  18. Actually, the home owner does assume "risk" and liability for his guests. The only irregularity here is that usually the home owner and his insurance company are sued but in the case six individuals are named including the manufacturer of the fire pit. I don't know about you but if I am named in a lawsuit, it would bother me even if I was really not to blame. The media is describing the incident of the young lady and it is not a nice story. I was burned a few times in my life and can tell you it is very painful. Her scars look very real to me and if I was Cody that in itself would bother me. Hopeful it gets resolved and everyone can get back to a good life.
  19. Fuck off, any decent judge should laugh that out of court.
  20. An Ottawa woman who was left with second- and third-degree burns when she was "engulfed in flames" at a dinner party hosted by Cody Ceci is now suing the former Ottawa Senators' player and others for more than $8 million in damages. Hana Engel, 25, had burns to 35 per cent of her body after an incident on May 9, 2018 that involved an outdoor tabletop fireplace at Ceci's Stittsville home, according to the statement of claim for the lawsuit. The statement of claim, filed July 24, alleges that Engel was "immediately engulfed in flames" when Ceci's common-law partner Jamie Thompson, a co-defendant in the suit, accidently ignited her with flaming liquid ethanol burner fuel. The incident Thompson was trying to refill one of the burners on the outdoor fireplace around 9 p.m. while Engel and other guests were seated around the table, according to the statement of claim. The lawsuit claims that Thompson squirted the ethanol onto the burner without checking to determine if it had cooled or completely extinguished, causing flames and ethanol to jet out of the bottle, which was still in her hands. "The defendant Thompson immediately threw the burning bottle in Hana's direction," the statement of claim said. "Hana's clothing caught fire and she was immediately engulfed in flames." None of the allegations in the statement of claim have been tested in court. The lawsuit also files claims against Clair de Lune Products, Inc., the manufacturer of the tabletop ethanol fireplace and its subsidiary Les Distributions Orca Lite Inc., which distributed and sold the ethanol biofuel marketed for use in its tabletop fireplaces. According to the lawsuit, Clair de Lune stopped selling the tabletop ethanol fireplace following the incident. No statement of defence has been filed from any of the parties involved. Millions in damages, 6 plaintiffs Hana Engel is seeking more than $6 million in damages for the pain and suffering, loss of amenities, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of housekeeping and homemaking capacity, loss of income, loss of competitive advantage in the marketplace and loss of economic opportunities. The statement of claim describes Hana as a "talented and ambitious" yoga enthusiast and businesswomen, who owned and operated a yoga studio in Ottawa. The claim states she was in a coma for three weeks and had to undergo three surgeries after the incident. It also notes that her appearance has been changed permanently and she continues to seek ongoing rehabilitation and treatment. Engel's common-law partner, Jacob Cardwell, as well as her parents, Bruce and Bonnie Engel and her siblings, Matthew and Sabrina Engel, are also named as plaintiffs in the lawsuit. Cardwell is seeking $900,000 in damages for the loss of care guidance and companionship, the loss of income and for costs associated with the nursing, attendant care and other services provided to Engel. He is also seeking damages for nervous shock, intentional infliction of mental suffering and emotional distress. Engel's parents are seeking $700,000 in damages for loss of care, guidance and companionship and for costs associated with nursing, attendant care and other services given to Hana, while her siblings are seeking $200,000 on a similar claim. Alleged negligence, lawsuit claims The lawsuit claims alleges that the accident was caused "entirely by the individual or combined negligence" of the defendants. It further claims that Thompson didn't know how to properly operate the fireplace, disregarded warning labels, failed to take safety precautions, failed to warn guests of the danger, failed to read instructions, and allegedly squirted liquid ethanol onto an open flame. The lawsuit also accuses Ceci of negligence for allegedly also not knowing how to properly operate the fireplace, failing to read instructions, failing to understanding the safety precautions, failing to prevent Thompson from refilling the fireplace with ethanol while the flame was low and ignoring the warning labels. The lawsuit states that "he otherwise breached his duties as an occupier of premises." It also alleges negligence on the part of the manufacturer Clair de Lune and distributor Orca Lite in a list of claims over the make and design of the fireplace, and issues regarding the instructions and warning labels on the products.

    I'm not a big fan of Anthony Kay, but Simeon Woods-Richardson is going to be the jewel of the Stroman deal.
  22. Accidentally light someone on fire? I have to hear this story.

    I'm not really on board with any of the Fisher hype but I hope he pans out for the Jays. It's hard not to be frustrated in the Jays getting very little for Stroman at the peak of his talent. Kind of reminds me of the Kessel trade a little except Phil is the fuckin man and Stro...not so much. Like Pitty said though- these young kids are fun to watch.

    Jared, my man, thoughts on if there is a good place to lock up a kayak in Campbell River? I'm considering paddling up early one Saturday, having a beer and some lunch or something, then paddling back down.
  27. Seems like it. There's no criminality involved. This is the type of lawsuit that is usually settled pretty quietly out of court, and mostly by lawyers. Can't see it being a major distraction.
