Weekend Roundup

  • The Times Colonist recently published the story Royal B.C. Museum Protects Court Documents Full of History and Great Stories.  These include “60 boxes of bound volumes and other items . . . largely from the B.C. Court of Appeal, which first sat in 1910, but some are from its predecessor, the Supreme Court of B.C. — then also known as the Full Court.”  These include “a number of ‘cause’ books included in the material, heavy volumes that contain summaries of cases and were once toted from place to place by judges.”
