2. Ask them to consider the question: What is the role of the Canada Gazette in government decision making? In pairs or individually, have students draft several points in response. (You may also wish to refer students to the educational resource: Understanding the Canada Gazette.)

3. As a class, discuss the question: What are some of the key features of the Canada Gazette?

4. Have students switch to a more focused search by asking them to do an Internet search (i.e. using "Google") with the key-words "SARS" and "Quarantine Act". What do they find? Ask them why they think these topics may be significant. (Answer: They are examples of an international event that affected legislation in Canada.)
