Parliament reaches web 2.0…well, sort of

August 4, 2009

A fantastic new site has just appeared in the wilds of the Social Media-sphere, Parliament2. The site is not run by parliament (booo, parliament) but is brought to you by the makers of PoliTwitter and Blogging Canadians. It lets Canadians propose, discuss and rank any priorities important to them.  The hopeis to send a message to parliament about what Canadians value and let the people actually discuss topics of interest and weigh the pros and cons.  Its democracy for the social media age, I strongly encourage you to go take a look. Its currently still very new so now is the time to make a mark in this new community.

For #fairvoters, the “Proportional representation and fairness in voting” priority is currently ranked 15, surely we can take it higher.

    I’ve added a new priority that is even less controversial and hopefully more universal in its appeal, just asking people whether reform should be looked into. Vote here : http://parliament2.ca/priorities/61-national-referendum-on-whether-we-need-electoral-reform
