This is the Law

There’s a news item today about the death of This Is the Law host Austin Willis. This would have been an excellent contribution to the DNTO feature “That’s SO Canadian.” I vaguely recall this show but it was a game show in which contestants used to their knowledge of arcane Canadian by-laws to compete for, I dunno, a nice pen set or something. I remember a bit where they showed a short film of actor Paul “voice of Spider-Man” Soles erecting a small fence to demostrate that he was, in fact, breaking a Regina by-law that regulates fence-height.

I think I watched a couple of times then turned over to the Price is Right.
