Bonus comment: So 13% of your legal fees get paid straight back to the government as HST that your lawyer has a duty to collect and remit. The government does not just use those funds to try to put you in jail. The money might also be used to send more government lawyers to court to argue that accused persons who cannot afford a lawyer you should just go to trial without one. They will actually fly those government lawyers in from out-of-town and put them up in hotels so they can be there in court the next day to argue that the government should not have to pay for a lawyer for the penniless accused.
