Slaw Milestone: Ten Thousand Posts

With this entry Slaw goes past an impressive milestone: our bloggers and columnists have given our readers ten thousand posts since Slaw began very nearly eight years ago. In that time we’ve acquired thousands of readers from Canada and around the globe and our complement has grown from half a dozen bloggers to a robust two dozen bloggers and sixty columnists.

This is a good occasion to say thank-you to those of you who now write for Slaw and to the many who have contributed over the years. And thank you especially to you, our readers, who are the reason we do what we do.


  1. And bravo to Simon and everyone else who has created this! Slaw is a constant source of information and stimulation. It’s a tremendous contribution to the Canadian legal community.

    Woweee!!! This is the part where we say “Thanks” to Simon for your vision, dedication, sense of humor, credibility, consistency and for keeping all of us in touch with the old words (etymologically speaking) while we learn the new ones (IT speaking).

    What I really care about, besides the addition of “legal ethics” to the columns, is that this is an equal opportunity site for sharing, learning, questioning and debating.

    Simon, Here’s to the next 10,000!

  3. I look forward to the imminent doubling of the stipend paid to bloggers and tripling of that for columnists…

    Congratulations, Simon, for your continued imagination in expanding the scope and content of this blog and keeping it relevant. It’s definitely my primary online source of information and entertainment.
