This Week in Open Government


September is off to a politically charged start as the party conventions wrap up in the US and Quebec ushers in a new government. The election brought good news for civic engagement: 74.61% of eligible voters in Quebec turned out this past Tuesday, the highest participation rate since 1998. Open North and our friends are hard at work on opening up other democratic processes to the public through open data and open government to sustain this momentum.
