A toxic mix [updated]

Greedy homeowners, lawyers and insurance companies. How they're treating a child hero in Alberta.

UPDATE: (May 7) After a public outcry and a question in the House of Commons, the lawsuit against young Aaliyah Braybrook has been dropped.
The insurance company has been identified, by the way, as TD Insurance.

And it appears that I owe an apology
--which I here unreservedly offer--to the grandparents who were named as plaintiffs in the action. This was an instance of something called subrogation, a legal manoeuvre that permits an insurance company to sue in the name of "plaintiffs" who do not even have to give consent for an action in their names. Live and learn.
