Frank Callaghan; The defense lawyer does the work of the prosecution

If there's one thing I've cherished over the years of following the Canadian mining scene, it's the sharp and dry wit of Mike Caswell over at Stockwatch.

"Lawyers for Frank Callaghan, the former chief executive officer of Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd., appeared before the B.C. Securities Commission on Monday to protest the TSX Venture Exchange's refusal to approve Mr. Callaghan as an officer or director. They said that the exchange has treated Mr. Callaghan unfairly in withholding its approval. They described Mr. Callaghan as the "kind of person who should be active in the mining industry," being one of the few to have taken a junior company to the production stage."
