If you're like me, when you think Vancouver this year you think crappy weather, dead luger, guys in clown outfits pushing discs around on brooms, and that cute blonde skier, but apparently there's more according to the Vancouver Sun:
Hey, at least a South Florida lawyer made the list!
"In general, we expect attorneys who provide us with letters to know securities laws, do the work required, and be ethical," Pink Sheets chairman Cromwell Couslon earlier told me.
"We ban them when it becomes apparent they are stupid, lazy or dishonest."
This is truly a dubious distinction. To date, Pink Sheets has relegated 18 lawyers to its Hall of Shame.
Of these, 13 have been cited by the U.S. Securities and Exchange for securities breaches.
Among them are Vancouver lawyer John Briner, Miami Lawyer Joseph Emas, and Seattle lawyer David Otto, all of whom have been extremely active in the Vancouver marketplace.
Consider it the bronze, if you will, but I think we can do better.
