There is a private website called openparliament.ca. Someone came up to me because they wanted to know how I voted, and they were looking at this website, not the government's website, and it was a French person.
This surprised me a bit. I had asked myself why it wasn't available in French. I then realized that it was a private website.
The site was launched in 2010, and he said he wanted to know what his MP had been doing in the House and, short of laboriously going through every day's voluminous transcripts by hand, Parliament's data was hard to use, and he couldn't get access to it.
He does say that, since 2010, the government's own site, which is called ourcommons.ca has gotten a lot better. This is an example within less than seven years that.... He says that the government site is using a lot of the way that he presents data. It's not just having data but the availability. This is an example of a private citizen using openparliament.ca, which sounds more like the government's site than ourcommons.ca, but he has that name, openparliament.ca.
In this example, would you be open to calling this person up, bringing him in, and saying, “How are you doing your data, collecting it, and presenting it to the public so they have access to data?”
