Correction from APTN National News

Editors Note: 
Our story about Day 1 of the Law Society of Upper Canada’s hearings into allegations of professional misconduct against Kenora lawyer Douglas Keshen unfortunately contained two errors.

We reported Mr. Keshen was accused of “pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollar” above the allowable fees for his services representing former residential schools students as they sought compensation for serious physical and/or sexual abuse in the schools under the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement Independent Assessment Process.

The survivors’ allegations being examined by the law society do not accuse the lawyer of that.

We also reported that Mr. Keshen was accused of providing clients with “predatory high interest loans.”

That is also not among the allegations being examined by the law society.

APTN National News apologizes for the errors.
