If you want to illegally sell your kidney, it's probably best not to :
Saying he is "flat broke" because of the court battle, which killed his reputation as a legitimate and competent provider of offshore financial services, [Quebec City businessman Jean Bédard] is eligible to qualify for legal aid but is unable to find a lawyer willing to take his case.
