  • Ontario Superior Court Judge Paul Kane • Regarding the actions of Ahti and Maija Blick, who turned a dispute over a neighbor’s garage into a 30-year conflict that involved undermining the structure of the garage and basically recreating the plot of Grumpy Old Men. Lucien and Jacqueline Desjardins got more than $57,000 in damages for their trouble, which was so bad that they wanted to sell their home, but couldn’t because they had a reputation. • source
