1972 - Full Reporting by Hansard Begins
The Legislative Assembly first introduced a
limited Hansard (which is the substantially verbatim record of parliamentary proceedings) on January 22, 1970.
This early record was only made available after a session of the Legislative Assembly had concluded and did not contain debates at the
committee stage of bills or from the
Committee of Supply’s review of the government's fiscal Estimates.
On January 20, 1972, a
full daily Hansard was implemented, which continues to serve as a complete record of everything said in the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia.
