 [h3]Canadians demand access to govt data         [/h3]A group of geeks, lawyers, academics, policy experts, geographers, and librarians have joined together from across Canada to fight the evils of Crown Copyright (a Canadian thing) and proprietary formats. They're fighting to get access to our civic data - from high-res maps to minutes of city meetings. [blockquote] Their goals are: 1. To encourage all levels of governments (county, municipal, provincial, federal) to make civic data and information available to citizens without restrictions, at no cost, and in useable open formats. [/p] 2. To encourage the development of citizen projects using civic data and information. [/p][/blockquote]  [a href=""]Link[/a]
