An honour to even be considered 

What a pleasant surprise to discover that The Canadian Privacy Law Blog has won the first ever CLawBie award for "Best Practitioner Support Blog"!

The CLawBies are a creation of Steve Matthews of Vancouver, BC. Had he not been forced to disqualify his own Vancouver Law Librarian Blog, he would have been in the running in the ultra-competitive Law Librarian Blog Award.

2006 CLawBies - Canada Law Blog Awards

2) Best Practitioner Support Blog - No question on this one. If you track privacy law in Canada, you read David Fraser's Canadian Privacy Law Blog. David must also be Canada's most dedicated blogger. His work is as close to exhaustive as a blog can deliver. And did I mention David's selection as a 2006 Outstanding Young Canadian? Runner ups: eLegal Canton, Alan Gahtan’s Technology and Internet Law Blog

It is very humbling to be included in such esteemed company and also gratifying that, through my blog, I've gotten to know many of my fellow nominees. This blog is coming up on its fifth birthday next week and I'm looking forward to what 2007 brings.

Thanks, Steve.
