Stay up-to-date with email alerts

Open Parliament - Mon, 07/14/2014 - 03:05

Just launched a test version of a new alerts system. Check it out. (Though I should warn you that it's a test, and it may change or disappear.)

Email alerts were one of the things I thought were necessary to launch this site—which is now, at 2.5 years, well into its toddler years. Actually, I built the signup page before launching the site, but I wasn't sure people would actually sign up. When lots did, I scrambled to finish the actual email-sending code before Hansard was published.

But till now, email alerts were restricted to everything a given MP said. The new system lets you get alerts for any given search query—every time someone says climate change in the Environment committee, every bill that mentions the CBC, all that talk about carbon taxes, and so on.

To get started, sign up. Then you should start seeing Create an alert buttons on search pages.
