Chaaange? Not!

Finally, news where I can actually stand up proudly and say take a page from the United States on this one, Canada [whitehouse.gov]:

Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public.

That's Obama talking, right?

I certainly hope Obama follows through.

You have your answer.
