Another cool project launching, with a lot of cool/ knowledgable/ intelligent people behind it; CivicAccess.

We would like to announce the launch of a new online space for Canadian civic engagement – Citizens for Open Access to Civic Information and Data (aka: CivicAccess is being founded by librarians, civil servants, academics, lawyers, free- and open-source advocates, geomatics professionals and community planners from across Canada. We are motivated by the belief that open civic information and data are necessary for being engaged citizens in an “information society”.

Very important stuff, thanks for getting this going guys.
