We found the 2013 CLE text Introducing Evidence at Trial: A BC Handbook in our book drop on December 19th, but it's not our copy.
Is anyone missing it?
There are no stamps in the book, but it does have a call number on the spine, KN390 I57 2013. There is a card pocket in the back, complete with card, that was last filled out on September 5th by JRB.
If it's yours, let us know! 604-660-2841. If we don't hear anything by February 2, 2015, we're going to adopt it into our collection.
From Ronn Cheney:
Good day all:
I have a lawyer retiring at end of year and has a complete set (46 volumes) of Halsbury’s Laws of England - 3d ed + the Canadian Converter supplements.
For the cost of shipping they will be available until end of December.
Our local recycling depot will not take books (Go figure) so he would like them to go to an inside location that is warm and fuzzy.
After all it is Christmas.

The Queen's Printer has announced that the BC Gazette Part II is now available on the BC Laws website (http://www.bclaws.ca/). Issues are available from October 2001 to the present.
If you know a current grade 12 student or an in-progress undergrad student who aspires to be a law librarian/lawyer/paralegal/legal assistant, I encourage you to send them the attached Senate Page Program recruiting information.
I was a Senate Page for two years and it was a fantastic experience because I was so interested in political science. I definitely recommend it over the rival House of Commons Page Program. Typically, Senate Pages will go on to work in public policy, law, or non-profit management.
Please feel free to have any interested young people in your life contact me if they have any questions.

From Carla Graebner, Simon Fraser University:
Statistics Canada is in the process of redeveloping their website and is looking for feedback [http://www.statcan.gc.ca/beta/n1/en].
From their FAQ [http://www.statcan.gc.ca/beta/n1/en/statcan_faq#a1_1]:
"We are improving our website in response to comments received from our users. While most users are able to navigate the current website and find the information they require, we have identified the need for a more simplified and coherent product line.
Statistics Canada is also changing the way it disseminates information to Canadians to take advantage of evolving technology, increase user satisfaction and improve data retrieval success rates."
The FAQ notes that the beta site is not to be used as the source for official statistics since the information on it is a snapshot of content from spring 2014. Feedback can be given on a page by page basis, sent directly to the Statistics Canada web design team or submitted to the discussion forum for participating online [http://www.statcan.gc.ca/beta/n1/en/consultation

Supporting the firm's business development through research is a stated part of my role. To what extent Is it an explicit or implicit part of your responsibilities?
