Lawyers and police take to the stage for a good cause

lawyer play.jpgFor weeks over at the Ottawa Police Station, there's been an ongoing conflict that went from the police gym, into the boardroom, as lawyers and police, both officers and the chief, faced off on an unusual subject: Shale gas.


It's because those lawyers and police are all in the play, Still Looking For Paradise -- a production of the company Ottawa Lawyers Feed The Hungry. They fundraise for the kitchens at the Ottawa Mission.


Among those on stage will be Paul Gallant -- in real life, an Ottawa Police inspector, but on stage, the president of Green Futures International. Inspector Gallant joined us in studio for a preview, as did lawyer and playwright Ian Stauffer.
