BC judge rewrites woman's will, giving daughter millions more

There is another new case from BC (estate of Norma Lougheed) in which a judge overturned an individual's will to redistribute the estate. This time it resulted in a daughter receiving another $5million over and above what her mother had left her. Click here to read the story.

I read some of the comments readers had attached to that story in the Globe and Mail, many of whom were outraged at the decision. One comment I read several times was "what's the point of making a will if it's going to be changed anyway?" If that's how you're reacting, please keep in mind that not all jurisdictions have the same law (the Wills Variation Act) as BC.
