Que se passe-t-il avec la « nouvelle plateforme de participation des citoyens fondée sur le Web 2.0 que pourront utiliser les organismes fédéraux pour mener des consultations publiques » et avec le « projet d’externalisation ouverte » évoqués dans la version 1 de votre plan d’action. On dirait bien que le gouvernement fédéral ne passe pas à l’ère du Web 2.0 (du moins, pour le moment), sachant que le gouvernement ouvert profiterait grandement de ce changement s’il était opéré de façon avisée et doté des ressources adéquates. Les grandes sociétés et les autres ordres de gouvernement ont un véritable dialogue avec les citoyens et les intervenants : pourquoi ce n’est pas le cas du Canada? Il faut également déployer plus d’efforts et consacrer davantage de ressources pour bien faire connaître les avantages et les possibilités qu’offre un gouvernement ouvert.

Thank you for your idea and comments. How does this current consultation measure up? Also, what are your ideas on we how we should better publicize the benefits and opportunities of Open Government?

@thomk If I understand Mark correctly, the technical requirements of such a system are really small. Think a public Wiki, or a public message board. The real commitment to resources comes, when the managers, bureaucrats and politicians actually have to do some work related to activity on the wiki. They need to actively engage with these systems, to help determine a course of action. Its easy to setup an example website Wiki.gc.ca but its hard as a public servant to actually make sure your work accounts for the desires of this system.

I agree with the above comment. How will the Canadian Public know where to look for this information? As a start, perhaps the web sites of all Government Departments should be modified to be more user friendly for the Canadian Public.

I wonder what the requirements for such a platform would be. Does anyone have any particularly good examples to share?
