William Werbenuk died more than two years ago with just enough money in the bank to pay for his funeral. The 86-year-old widower’s will gave all assets to his only son, Randall, and left his four daughters with nothing.
This week, a B.C. Supreme Court judge overturned the Penticton, B.C., man’s will, saying his estate should be distributed to all of the man’s children based on ‘‘contemporary moral standards’’ − a move that has sparked much debate about a judge’s right to change a person’s will after they die.
The daughters have a “valid moral claim to share in the family wealth,” Judge Wong ruled.
Thank goodness we now have the state to decide what is morally valid on our behalf. Wills are obsolete - we can't be trusted to make the right (feminist) decision.
If only more men realised that their role in life is cash production unit for the benefit of women!
