Guidelines for Use of Hansard Transcripts
The Speaker of the Legislature of British Columbia grants permission to reprint excerpts of the Hansard report for purposes such as educational use, private study, research, criticism, review or newspaper summary. News providers may make use of excerpts of the transcripts in their publications for the purpose of fair and accurate reports of proceedings. Excerpts may not be purposefully distorted or used for political party advertising, election campaigns or any other politically partisan activity. Any other commercial use or repurposing of the transcripts require the express written approval of the Speaker.
If a transcript is denoted Blues, it is a
DRAFT TRANSCRIPT ONLY. Public attribution outside the legislative precincts is not protected by parliamentary privilege and could entail liability.
