Taxpayer are shareholders company CANADA, run by government employs and politicians. They are responsible used taxis for benefits our country and citizens. As business owner must manage company money and don't go to deficit - have to take from his pocket and ad to business. Same responsibility have to have our government. PAY THEIR MISMANAGEMENT FROM THEY POCKET ANT POLITIKAL PARTY ASSETS!!!!!!! It need to be done and not firs giving taxpayers money to support every else and don't have for our citizens - senior, mothers wit kits, improve healthcare, etc. Comparing to private business they do very pore job for the paycheque they receive. The pay and benefits need to be expose to public - the taxpayers. More next time.

Because everyone in eastern Canada can easily get to Fredericton right? It seems to me that these folks are just doing the best they can on a limited budget.

Can I have some future online events that we could mobilize around? Say a series of online twitter chats with politicians & senior bureaucrats around a unique hashtag say #OpenGovCan4 I'd like to see a planned https://www.reddit.com engagement. Maybe posting the plan on GitHub so that others can fork it and do PR's.

Hi Mike! Thank you for the input, as always, and great ideas. We’re definitely going to have some online events – beyond the discussion that takes place on open.canada.ca – and Reddit’s on the shortlist. The Open Government team
