LawLISNS are short legal information podcasts presented by the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia (LISNS-pronounced 'listens').  LawLISNS talks about everyday legal problems in Nova Scotia, your rights and responsibilities, and ways to work things out.

The law and information talked about in this episode were current as of August 2023.  Laws change, so check with LISNS or a lawyer to see if the law has changed since then.  LISNS podcasts explain the law in a general way as it applies in Nova Scotia, Canada.  The information is not intended as legal advice.  If you have a legal problem, contact a lawyer for advice about what steps you should take in your situation.
