Public Policy Wiki

Idea factory The Dominion Institute and The Globe and Mail are jointly launching a public policy wiki.
We'd like to try and open that process up a little, and this is our attempt to do that. One of the benefits to the Internet is that it lowers the barriers that can prevent people from discussing these kinds of important topics, and allow them to provide their thoughts about the direction the government should take. Some would argue that it lowers the barriers a little too far, but that's a subject for another day, and another wiki :-)

Above all, this is an experiment, and one that we hope will provide a useful forum for concerned citizens of all kinds to contribute their thoughts and ideas on some of the issues mentioned above. We're starting with one issue (The Federal Budget), but we hope to make this a home for similar discussions on a range of other important topics. How — or even whether — we do that will depend on your response to this initial "beta test."
