“Defence lawyer Terry Laliberte launched a successful appeal Wednesday. It was a marriage proposal to Janet Rhodes. The couple then attended the Slurp & Swirl wingding at Joe Fortes, a locale long known for inspiring relationships that fade at dawn. Helping the event benefit the Vancouver Firefighters Charitable Society, not to mention the jointâ€™s amorous reputation, Bob Skinner (a.k.a. Oyster Bob) added 2,500 bivalves to the five million heâ€™s shucked there.”
