Ted in Ottawa
Here are three ways that you can follow what is happening on "the Hill". The first website captures up to date information, and the following two websites stream video you can watch on your computer. It's important for citizens to know that they can follow what's being said and done in Ottawa on their behalf.
Want to know what your Member of Parliament is up to? Want to know what other MP's are up to? Here's a one stop website that gives each member a page and lists what they have last said and where they have said it: in the House of Commons, on Facebook, on Twitter. This site is an example of Open Data Government transparancy, where citizens can take public information and present it in user friendly ways to the public--making your elected officials more accountable.
