The Agenda: Transparency and government

I’m on vacation at the moment, so blog posts — which have been all too infrequent of late — are likely to be even more infrequent, and may contain pictures of beaches and other non-work related content. In the interim, I’ve embedded in this post a clip of my recent appearance on The Agenda, the excellent TVO show hosted by Steve Paikin and produced by Mike Miner. I was joined by Anthony Williams, co-author with Don Tapscott of the recent book Wikinomics; Leslie Harris of the Center for Democracy and Government in Washington and Maryantonett Flumian, a former deputy minister with the federal government who now teaches public and international affairs at the University of Ottawa. We talked about governmental transparency, and whether governments both north and south of the border will be able to follow through on the promise of greater interactivity that the Obama campaign brought with it.

  1. Recently I found “City Information Classifieds Portal” site http://www.inkakinada.com it has many features like fast searching, ads management, google map integration, working with webservices etc.,

    It contains huge information relating to a city … and is growing every day. It is a small web directory of business, education, finance, health, medical, real estate, jobs, travel and more… for life time free in our site.

  3. yes transparency in a government or in any organization is very important. but not all transparency is good. there are times that you need to keep something for the good of the many.

  4. Not a problem, great that you re taking some time to do the vacations, just subscribing your blog to make sure the next time you post, thanks.
