Happy New Year!

A belated welcome to 2016. Normal post-holiday service should now resume.

Some good news to begin the year. Administrative Law Matters won the 2015 Fodden Award for Best Canadian Law Blog. Here are the very kind and generous words of the judges:

This was one of our toughest choices in years, thanks to the incredible quality and high standards of the top Canadian law blogs. But there was simply no way to deny Administrative Law Matters from claiming the coveted Fodden Award. Paul Daly’s blog is a master’s-level course in understanding and keeping up with the latest developments in an area of law that touches everyone from the largest corporation and government department to the smallest business and individual Canadians. Paul’s singular accomplishment is to combine such high quality with such extraordinary quantity: new posts appear as frequently at his one-man blog as they do on many group blogs. In a field of deserving candidates, Administrative Law Matters is the clear choice for best law blog of the year.

It is indeed humbling to be recognized in a category that included last year’s winner Léonid Sirota, the excellent group blog at the University of Calgary (ABlawg), and surely the leading member of the Canadian blawgosphere, Michael Geist.

Thanks again to all of you for reading, and to Marie-France and our children for providing regular inspiration.
