I have very few candidates for an executor and no one that I fully trust. I intend to leave everything to a charity. Since the charity won't be aware of my death or the provisions of my will I see the possibility of my executor not carrying out my wishes. My question is: is there anything in the formalities of executing a will that would force an executor to follow my instructions?

This is general advice, not based upon any particular case, fact or law: seek individual legal advice. I can only answer generally and cannot offer an opinion about your case. If you want an objective opinion or to interview with a lawyer, check out many lawyers on the internet like our firm who offer free consultations on contingency files. You can also phone the Law Society Lawyer Referral Service directly at 1-855-947-5255 or 416-947-5255 (within the GTA), Monday - Friday, between 9 am - 5 pm. They will provide 3 names of lawyers who handle cases like yours. Good Luck! Hamoody Hassan, Senior Counsel, http://www.hassanlaw.com
