Quickscribe Launches BC Legislation Portal!

After a few months in the Steve Matthews garage, I'm happy to announce that Quickscribe's new BC Legislation Portal is now ready to start tracking the latest changes in BC Law!

The primary goal of this site is to provide a quick and easy place for anyone in British Columbia to watch the latest updates to provincial law. As soon as amendments come into force, this website will automatically publish a summary. Visitors will also be able to scan the most recent updates, review the monthly archives, and search for changes by the name of an Act or Regulation.

And for Quickscribe Online customers, there's an added bonus. If you're already logged in, you're a click away from seeing each paragraph in full text, before and after the amendment. This part works the same as I described in my blog about their RSS updates.

To get the site launched, we back loaded about six months of changes. As the number of changes grow and time passes, I'm also hopeful the search functionality will provide a quick way to identify if outdated print copies are still reliable. As in, 'I have a year old copy of that Act, is it still ok?'

If you're in the BC market, please check out the site! Your thoughts & feedback are definitely welcome.
