Readers will have already noticed that Slaw now counts Gary P. Rodrigues among its regular contributors; but we are proud to announce it, even if we’re a little late in doing so.
Gary was the senior publishing executive at both Carswell and Lexis Nexis during the periods of their greatest expansion and development and was, in effect, the architect of their current print and online publishing programs. As well, he is a former President of the Canadian Publishers Council and a former CoChair of Access Copyright when it was known as Cancopy. From time to time, he has served as an international election observer, most notably in Namibia and Bosnia. He now acts as a consultant on publishing strategies and hopes to bring the perspective of a legal publisher to Slaw.
Welcome to Slaw, Gary — and great first post, by the way.
