Perhaps you should educate us.
He's probably referring to the much lower crime rate in Canada, which requires fewer lawyers to deal with it.
The crime rate is very similar (per capita) with the exception of violent crime, which makes up a fraction of the overall crime rate. Per wikipedia: Since violent crimes are a smaller fraction of all crimes, the difference between the two countries is less than the homicide rate might make it seem, and the overall rates are generally close.
So again, I think he should educate us all about how the crime rate in Canada leads them to have a bit more the half as many lawyers per capita.
