"Mr. L. shared the same perspective as the other defence witnesses on the character of the neighbourhood, testifying that that he 'could best describe a lot of people there as rednecks.' I infer that he meant by this term that the residents have the kinds of interests that people who live in rural areas are popularly thought to enjoy, such as carrying out their own home improvements and owning trucks, boats, heavy equipment or livestock."

Another well-written judgment out of the BCSC.  Half Raymond Carver, half Trailer Park Boys.  Takes a few paragraphs to get into direct evidence, at which point the narrative lifts off and soars.
