I am greatly afeared that this may be old news to some (though I did search slaw.ca to try to make sure that it has not been mentioned here), but it was news to me. And very cool news indeed. The federal parlimentary website has added XML/RSS tracking for the status of Bills. Want to know when a bill is out of committee, or has been sent to the Senate for a sober second thought? Just go to LEGISInfo, choose your favourite bill (or your least favourite bill). Then click on the tag and let your browser or RSS reader keep on top of it for you.
XML, is there anything you can’t do?
