Government Transparency and the Internet

Canadians are finally getting passionate about government as our own government drama unfolds. While it’s great to see, one can’t help but compare ourselves to our neighbours once again. While Obama has moved towards transparency in government with things like change.gov, youtube addresses and soliciting feedback, Canadian government seems to be doing little for transparency. Many meetings are still closed door and the copyright bill seems like it will be created without feedback again once the government returns. CBC’s Spark program recently did a great podcast on the government and the Internet. How do you think the government is doing with transparency?
