Open data movement meets your Member of Parliament

13/04/2010

The open data movement continues to turn out fascinating ways to filter info and make it more relevant. If you are interested in what your MP is saying but not willing to plow through Hansard or watch 7 hours of CPAC, a very cool new website will let you filter the mass of political information, debates, bills, voting record and news stories: openparliament.ca

Interesting story in the Globe about this new trend: "Suddenly, the entire debating history of Parliament is online, accessible and indexed. Any citizen can find out who said what and when."
