I like to know things first. It's a character flaw that is exacerbated by a desire to place the libraries first in the minds of my firm's lawyers for being the source of current information. With all the technology available for learning things, it should be easy to learn what you need to know. Lately though, I find myself stymied in my desire to know things first.
Today is a good example. Being from an Alberta farming background and growing up with my great grandfather's shotgun stored in my closet (unloaded of course), I thought I would write about the imminent demise of the Long Gun Registry.
The National Post reports that the bill to dismantle the registry will be unveiled today. The Bills on today's agenda page on the LEGISinfo website has nothing about this bill.
Twitter posts reveal that the bill was introduced an hour ago, yet I can't get my hands on it. Major Canadian newspapers are reporting about the bill, but the text is elusive.
Even in an era of instant communication, patience is required.
