As a parallel to the project, I just whipped up a new group blog Here is the about: is a group blog, inspired by, which believes all levels of Canadian governments should make civic information and data accessible at no cost in open formats to their citizens. The data is collected using Canadian tax-payer funds, and we believe use of the data should not be restricted to those who can afford the exorbitant fees.

Anyone who would like to participate with the odd post or whatever, let me know.

Shawna was kind enough to make the header graphic for the project.
