Provide opportunities for participants to see each other's suggestions and to record their levels of agreement.- Jason Diceman
Consultation via Twitter is perhaps not the best platform. Other social medias platforms would generate better results.- Anon
Consult with citizens, businesses, agencies, and institutions by taking a "Think Tank" approach. Allow them to conceptualize how the government should best consult with Canadians and how best to understand the changing landscape of Open Government.- Mark McDonald Chief Information Officer City of Vancouver
This format seems good.- BWM
Use tools like Twitter / Facebook. Follow the Engineers without borders example where they had 25,000 Canadians petition CIDA to use the IATI format.- Michael Roberts
