Gillian Guess Syndrome
Set of social behaviors in which women on B.C. juries unaccountably fall in love with accused persons and go from there to further sorts of silly behavior such as co-authoring books and other acts of dubious creativity. It’s hard to say whether GGS is caused by the B.C. climate, or by the nine years of NDP government, which seems to have widened the definition of what constitutes a victim so profoundly that literally anything out there can be forgiven and anyone fallen in love with. Was recently the subject of the worst soft-porn movie ever made in Canada.
