The Net: Happening Now – National Digital Strategy Online Discussion Today
10:50 am 11/04/11 – Submitted. Guest commentators Michael Geist and Steve Anderson will be joining Liberal candidate Marc Garneau for a live chat about the Liberal Digital Canada Plan this afternoon, unveiled in the Liberal Platform last week.
Call it a no holds barred conversation about Canada’s digital future.
Then Garneau will take your tough questions on net neutrality, open data, open government, usage-based billing (UBB), copyright, the CRTC, Internet access and coverage, and anything to do with digital policy.
On May 2, you have a chance to shape Canada’s digital future by helping us implement Canada’s first national digital strategy composed of these major components:
* Providing broadband access for all Canadians;
* Safeguarding an open Internet;
* Closing the Digital Divide;
* Achieving a fair balance between creators and consumers;
* Promoting Canadian content, culture and identity in digital media;
* Opening the government to Canadians;
* Promoting competition in a healthy business environment that rewards innovation;
* Giving Canadians the Parliament they deserve
* Modernizing the voting system;
* Protecting Canadians from digital threats.
During the live chat, in order to ensure a coherent conversation, we can only publish some of the comments and questions Canadians submit, so to ensure as many voices as possible can be heard, we encourage you to tweet into the #UBB hashtag, which we will be following closely.
We have also opened an Ask Me Anything (AMA)thread on Reddit, from which we will be taking the top questions.
RSVP for a reminder: http://lpc.ca/digital
See you at 2pm EDT.
From Marc Garneau
