Quickscribe Annotations for November and Cool New Hansard Feature

Only one new annotation reference from Quickscribe in November:
Another interesting item from Quickscribe is the recently added Hansard access from within their online platform, as noted in the recent VALL Review:  
New Hansard Feature on Quickscribe Online 2.0

Quickscribe recently added a new Hansard component to the Quickscribe Online 2.0 platform.
The concept behind this feature is to provide legal professionals with insight on the government intent behind the legislation and lessen the ambiguity for how a law is to be applied. 

Relevant Hansard references are conveniently accessible directly from the section level, making it easy for you to determine statutory intent. Each Hansard reference also includes links to the original debate on the official Hansard website and users are encouraged to follow these links for additional research. 

While not all laws on Quickscribe have Hansard included at this time, you can expect to see dozens more added over the course of the next few months. 

Most readers of this blog are familiar with Quickscribe for BC Legislation; but if you haven't yet explored it, I would encourage you to contact Mike Pasta. There is also a free trial available.
