A few ideas/suggestions
1. Make or use a platform (I.e.github) for all policy business. This means, creating policy, obtaining comments from Canadians, and viewing the minutes and MP comments from Parliament discussion. Make use of likes and dislikes option.
2. Publicize and educate Canadians on open gov. Unless you look for it, or are following the right social media threads, the average person would never know about the open data initiates. This needs to be spammed on everything until Canadians absolutely know. By spamming, I mean partner up with tv news networks, province, municipalities, banks, telecommunications so that any regular media that is being delivered to Canadians advertises open data and how to access.
Otherwise I love how the gov is reaching out on twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, etc!
