Thank you to those who responded to the survey request earlier this year. In response, changes have been made to content coverage for Legislative Update. The publication has been streamlined to focus on the primary areas of interest from survey respondents. For example, topical coverage for agriculture, farming, highways, roads and traffic safety has been discontinued.

A number of survey respondents submitted enhancement requests which are being considered at this time. If you are interested in having a conversation with us directly to discuss specific enhancement needs, please contact Samantha Delaney (sdelaney@osler.com).
