I'll be spending some time with government of Ontario next week. Folks
with eCommons and others have organized an independent public event
on Wednesday evening - see the full notice below.

For those interested in Ontario's online citizen engagement
interest ,check out <http://www.cio.gov.on.ca> and click on
"e-Government - What is it?" (center left).  There is a great
diagram showing a balanced e-government approach. Also, there
page on Citizen Engagement states:

   With its citizen-centred approach to government, the province has
   begun to develop a strategy on citizen engagement (sometimes
   referred to as digital democracy).  This strategy is intended to
   expand the use of electronic channels, mainly the Internet, to help
   bring citizens closer to their government.  The goal is to ensure
   citizens have access to a wide range of tools and information that
   will enable them to participate more fully in the democratic process.

Looks like it will be an interesting week.  If you'd like to connect
with other Canadians on DO-WIRE or receive any updates about next
week, send an e-mail to <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>.

See the public event notice below.
