This Week: BC Election results and Rackbin

by

  • This week, Christy Clark’s Liberals stunned many pundits by returning to office with a majority government in British Columbia’s provincial election. As we mentioned in a previous post, The Tyee used our Represent API to build a BC Election Map for voters. Post-election, the map now serves as a great resource to review polls and understand how the Liberals pulled out a win!

  • The Apps4Ottawa contest, organized by the City of Ottawa’s Open Data team, has entered its second phase - voting! Vote now on your favourite open data local app submissions before the winners are announced in June. We particularly like the submission, Ottawa City Councillors, which uses the Represent API.

  • We’re also getting very excited for the FCM Annual Conference and Trade Show in Vancouver! The conference, which runs May 31st to June 2nd, is the largest annual gathering of Canadian municipal leaders with an expected 2,000+ representatives in attendance. If you’re headed to the conference, be sure to find us at trade show booth 625 where we will be demonstrating Citizen Budget alongside our friends from Recollect.

  • Calling all opengov developers: Have you ever needed a more flexible Requestb.in? We recently released Rackbin - a small, simple, easy to install and customize postbin built on Rack. Enjoy!
